10 Signs You are A Born again Christian
One of the first steps to having an intimate relationship with God Almighty is to be Born Again. To be born again does not mean one has to enter into his or her mother’s womb and then be rebirth again. Being Born again is not physical, it is a spiritual experience. That is a conversion of the heart which takes place spiritually.
HOW SALVATION CAME INTO EXISTENCE
The first experience of the Heaven on Earth relationship between God and Mankind can be traced back to the beginning of the creation of the world when God created man in his image. Adam and Eve enjoyed God’s divine presence, they saw God and had an interaction with him physically. Unfortunately, Mankind lost the great opportunity of meeting God face-to-face when Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s commandments.
Ever since God sent out Adam and Eve from his presence, Mankind was exposed to the brutality of the Devil. The devil began to make evil merchandise of Men, harassing them and Rob them of the blessings they were supposed to have enjoyed.
God Almighty in his infinite mercy decided to save mankind from their woes, from the torment of Satan. He sent his only begotten Son ( Jesus Christ Of Nazareth) to the world to die for their sin.
Christ’s death was the propitiation for men’s sin and it is the stepping stone to reclaiming the lost relationship back to God. So, anyone who wants to divine relationship with God must first pass through the Salvation stage.
STEPS TO RECEIVE SALVATION
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE A SINNER
The very first step to receiving Salvation is to consciously accept that you are a sinner. Everyone born into this world is automatically a sinner, and the Devil can punish such a person anytime.
Acknowledging yourself as a sinner begins with soberness and remorsefulness of the heart. You have to convince God that you are nothing but a sinner. This first step of being sorrowful is very crucial.
BELIEVE THAT CHRIST CAME TO DIE FOR YOU
After acknowledging that you are a sinner, the next is to have total trust in Christ, that he is righteous and just to forgive all your sins.
CONFESS YOUR SINS
This stage is when you begin to tell God of the past evil deeds you have committed. This is when you open your mouth and heart to confess all the sins you have ever committed.
REPENT OF THE SIN
After confession has been made, the next is to repent from it. This is where you are going to promise the Lord in Prayers that you will never go back into sinning again. Ask Jesus to come into your heart, ask him to wash you from every garment of sin and filthiness.
After you said the prayer and you believe in your heart that you have been forgiven, then, you are now a born-again believer.
