7/23/12 Daily Devotion

John 3:3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again. ”

In order for us to enter the kingdom of God, we must be born again. When Jesus shared this with Nicodemus, he was truly confused. Nicodemus understood being born as one’s entrance into this world, so being born again carried his mind into a place of confusion. To be born again is to be born of Christ. It is to give up yourself to Him. It is to be baptized for the remission of your sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit, but it doesn’t end at this point. To be born again is to walk upon a different path in life. It is to see and embrace the necessity to become more of a reflection of   Jesus and less of the world. To be born again is to embrace a lifestyle that matters to God, a lifestyle that will carry others to the foot of the cross where they will also find salvation. Have you been born again? Are you living like you have been born again?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me overcome my sinfulness and begin to live powerfully for You within this life You have given me.
