I was born again in 1991 at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale. I now attend Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.
If you are born again then you will understand. If you aren’t then let me ask you these two questions;
Have you come to the point in your spiritual life that you know that if you died today you would go to heaven? If you were to die today and God asked you ‘why should I let you into my Heaven?’ what would you say?
I was never asked those questions up to that point in my life. In fact, I never even thought much of heaven or how to get there. I had read a little from the Bible and I spent some time at a catholic youth group but no one ever talked about salvation or Heaven. The Bible speaks about Heaven and being saved, Jesus said in John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Paul said in Romans 10:9″ That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
So I said a prayer to ask Jesus into my heart and to forgive me for my sins and that was the beginning of my life as a Christian.
