A great question faces you as you read this. It is not have you joined a church, mosque, synagogue, temple or even are you religious. However, the answer to this question will determine where you will spend eternity. The holy scriptures say, "..it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgement". The great question is, have you been born again?
In John 3:5-7 Jesus says, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again."
Acts 2:38-39 reads, "And Peter said to them, Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children, and all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself."
There are many people trusting in good works. They often say, "I'm a good person, I treat everyone right". Friend, salvation does not come through works.
Ephesians1:8-9 reads, "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
not as a result of works, that no one should boast."
My friend, you may belong to a religious institution, be an officer or even an active member. You may be striving to live right and attain a very high moral standard. Yet, if you have not been born of the water and of the Spirit, you cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5)
