Being born again is a life changing experience. The new birth God gives us transforms the inner life, affecting the way we think, talk and act. A person is born again when they believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and receive him as Lord.
Being born again is not the same as “turning over a new leaf”. It is not merely a moral transformation. It is a brand new life – the life of Christ – which is supernaturally produced in us by the Holy Spirit when we trust God’s word.
When we were born, we inherited the fallen nature of our human ancestors. We became enslaved by unclean habits. The born again experience brings an entirely New Life resulting in deliverance from sin. This New Life is available to all who will sincerely call upon the Lord to be saved.
