REBIRTH- IF YOU KNOW THE GIFT OF GOD
"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"(John 3:3). "If thou knewest the gift of God"(John 4:10).
It's that time of year again. The season that come with all the joys of Christmas. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? When we take out the Mas, we have the Christ left. It simply means that Christ is the reason for the season.
There is a rebirth. Christ is not going to be born the second time but Christ can be reproduced over and over again. Indeed it's a season of Love and we can see that love is all over the air. Christmas is a period to extend love but is love meant for just the Christmas Day?
The Bible says that "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"(John 3:16). God first loved and gave us a gift. Jesus(the gift of God) got to Jacob's well, a woman of Samaria came to draw water and when the woman saw Christ she couldn't just understand why a Jews will asked her for water.
But Jesus responded and said to her, "if you know the gift of God and the person who sat In front of you asking you for water, you won't ask questions at all." Today I am telling someone out there that if you know the Gift of God, you will not ask too many questions. That gift that God gave in order for man to be saved from death. For us to be reconciled back to God. For us to have sufficient grace. That gift who came and decided to pay the price for us all.
Today we celebrate Him even though we don't know the actual day that He was born. However, one thing is for sure, there is a birthday. Everyday is the birthday of Jesus Christ. Jesus answered Nicodemus and said unto him "except a man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God." I tell you this today, the day a person gets Born Again, there is a REBIRTH. Because Christ is being conceived again and when the believer begins to manifest the purpose of God in the world, delivery has taken place. It simply explains a child is born.
For the devil sinned from the beginning and fixed the world in the law of sin and death but for the birth of a Son, a purpose was manifested. A begotten was given and He died and saved the world from Sin and Death. Every birth has a purpose here on earth. If you have missed your path, you can always come back to the womb and be reborn again. Jesus said "Except a man be born again, he can not See..."
If only you know the Gift of God. If only you understand He whom God gave to us freely, without any obligation. The angel of the Lord said to the country shepherds "Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ The Lord"(Luke 2:10-11).
The day a person is born there is celebration all over. Why? Because Jesus is born. God created us in His own image, it means that we all look like Him. Again, "we are formed in Him before the foundation of the world." It means that He is us and we are Him. But if you have missed your steps, there is an avenue for a Rebirth. "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new"(2Corinthians 5:17).
The day a person gets born again, and allows God to manifest through him, he becomes a Saviour because for the purpose of destroying the plans and agenda of the wicked and the devil, a Son was manifested. If only you know and understand what God gave to us in Love, you will not wait a second to embrace the precious Gift.
Christmas is not crucifying Christ the second time. Christmas is about celebrating the Love of God. Celebrating Christ is about taking Christ out on the street. For the Blessings are by the way side. The most beautiful thing that can happen is sharing Christ with people who do not know Him.
There must be a rebirth in a day like this. You must ensure to save a captive soul by leading the Person to God through Christ Jesus. Anyone who is not born again, the person can not see the kingdom of God. Jesus said "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again"(John 3:7).
Accept Jesus today as Lord and Personal Saviour and you shall be saved. I don't know what you are going through right now. I don't know what the season brought to you. What I do know is that "All powers belong to God." If only you can accept the Gift of God. For with God, nothing shall be impossible.
You want to be saved from sickness, nightmares, shame, reproach, confusion, promise and fail, delays, lack, diseases etc. Come to Jesus. Jesus can do all things. He can save You. He can turn your situation around. He can help you get your centre right and fix you back into God's original purpose for your life.
If you have not yet accepted Jesus or You missed your path at some point in life, you can come to Him now. Now is the time. Tomorrow might be too late. Start the new year a brand new You. Rebirth... You can say this prayer.
Lord have mercy on me. Forgive my sins and blot out all my iniquities. I accept Jesus as Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe that Jesus died and rose the third day. Show me your lovely kindness and renew the spirit within me through Christ Jesus. Amen.
If you just said that prayer, congratulations. Christ who sees the secret will visit you. God bless you and His peace be with you all the days of your life. Merry Christmas!!!!
