The only way to be born again is to die to our sins. Asking God from the heart for forgiveness and leaving the sins that are destroying us.
It is a change of mind that leads to a change of direction. This is called REPENTANCE.
When we REPENT from our sins and TURN to Jesus, like the prodigal son, God will run to meet us EVEN IF WE ARE FAR FROM HIM.
The Lord is not slow concerning His promise, as some count slowness, but is long-suffering toward us, not purposing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9
Jesus said: I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13:3
God wants all men to REPENT, the sad part about this is that some “Christian Churches” don’t even tell people to repent. They tell people to “accept Jesus” as their personal savior.
It is God that must accept us and He will “IF” we believe in Him, repent of our sins and are born of the water and His Spirit.
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Proverbs 28:13
Once you repented, you will experience God’s hand taking away from you the chains of sin in your live. This true repentance brings joy in heaven and will bring PEACE to your soul.
I say to you that likewise joy shall be in Heaven over one sinner who repents, more than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:7
When we truly repent we no longer live to ourselves but unto Him that gave Himself for us.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
