Scripture of the Day - July 14, 2012

John 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Now-a-days, the term 'born again' is used rather loosely, so loosely in fact, that it has lost it's meaning for most of the evangelical world. Born of the water means going down in the waters of baptism in the name of Jesus. Born of the Spirit means being filled with God's Holy Spirit. And you do neither of these until you have repented of your sins. Read the book of Acts to see what they did. They understood the importance of obeying Jesus... but it seems that today we 'know better'.
There are many so called Christians who are not going to enter heaven because they refuse to obey Jesus. They brush aside repentance, baptism and being filled with the Holy Spirit, and promote "saying the sinners prayer" as being born again. What error! What a false hope they are sending out. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and the Bible, GOD'S word, makes it very clear that if ye live after the flesh ye shall die. Romans 8:11
Do you want eternal life? Then follow Jesus. He is the door to heaven. No man is going to sneak in another way.
