I am born again. What next? (2)



Four things God expects from a born again Christian. They are not designed to carry out the maintenance of your rebirth. They serve as spiritual lubrication geared towards the smooth running of your life. They aid your growth from Christian babyhood (brephos, in Greek) to the mature stature of what the Greek calls huios. Here are the four simple things:

* Pray only to your Father in heaven always (1Thessalonians 5:17); and in the name of Jesus (John 20:31; Acts 2:3, 3:6, 16:18; Ephesians 5:20; Philippians 2:10). As your heavenly Father, He wants to hear you because He loves you very much. He is a God of legality. The things you say have legal recordings against your enemy, therefore, talk to your Father! Amen!

* Read the Bible. Joshua 1:8 instructs, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” The Bible is God’s protocol. In it is God’s word, which is His power. The more you read His word the more you know the mind of God.

* Hebrews 10:25, Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” The only place of Christian assemblage is in the Church. The language of this verse is a commandment. A Christian goes to Church to refuel his spiritual tank and to recharge the potency of the battery his new life. Church attendance is of utmost pith of Christian living.


* The fourth is found in the Book of Mark 16:15, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” This is the essence of being the Lord’s soldier and His ambassador. Tell everyone you meet that Jesus is the saviour. Anyone who believes God’s word wants to become His child. Pray the prayer or salvation with the person. Get them born again.


The good things you did before you got born again will earn you only earthly rewards. They do not enter into the celestial record of righteousness. You start to work for God only after you go through spiritual rebirth. This is when you can be said to be laying treasures in heaven. 1Corinthians 3:13-15 says, “Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14) If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15) If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” I am doing everything to receive my rewards of gold. What are you doing? Work for God. It pays. The scripture attests to it.


Get truly born again by saying this sinners’ prayer: “Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen! (Conclusion)

    Those that call themselves “Born again” should accept Jesus as the reason of their new birth and respect him for who he is (the son of God and not God) and for what he has done (his own will putting aside to do the will of God and having offered himself to God as a ransom payment for the sins of all).

    From their baptism (or rebirth) the way to God got a new start, and by baptism being only the beginning lots still has to be done, making use of the Scriptures to guide and help oneself.

      Have you read the Pauline apostolic couch of Heb 1:8 “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom?” For your scriptural information, the Greek original scripting has the ‘O!’ exclamation. God the Father said to Jesus ascension, “THY THRONE, O! GOD….” Do you understand that? There are so many other verses of Christ’s deity. Several! Search the Bible.

    why would you recommend sinners prayer or salvation prayer that is not found in the scripture, this is heresy. you rightly quoted Mark 16:15 ‘Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature; look at verse 16, it says …he who believes and is baptised shall be saved. it did not say … he who believes and says sinner or salvation prayer shall be saved; moreover, nobody was born again in the bible by saying the sinner’s prayer. 1) on the day of pentecost Acts 2, 3000 souls became born again. what was the sequence a), the apostles preached the gospel to the crowd, b) the crowd believed and ask for the next Vs.37, Peter said repent and be baptised every one of you. Peter did not ask them to recite the sinner’s prayer, also check Acts 8:12; 34-39 instant baptism not sinner’s prayer.Dont add to nor subtract from the word of God

      There is no way anyone would want to be born again without being introduced to Jesus, the Author of soteriology. Just because the Bible didn’t record this Christian ritual does not mean none said it.

      It seems to me, Peter, that you are yet to be acquainted with the Pauline couch of Romans 10:8-10, which reads, “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we preach),
      9) because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
      10) For with the heart one believes and thus has righteousness and with the mouth one confesses and thus has salvation.” THIS, PETER, IS THE BEST SCRIPTURE TO THE SINNERS’ PRAYER.

      What did Paul and Silas tell the gaolers to be saved? It is found in Acts 16:31, “They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.”

      Thank you, Peter, for this question/comment.
