In case you are not aware, the most important investment in life is being Born Again(Confessing and accepting Jesus into you heart and life) . Every goal and achievement in this world can only be beneficial while you are still alive. When you die, your achievement in this world won’t count anymore. The only thing that will matter is if you are born again or not.  Jesus answered and said to him, Verily,verily, I say to you, Excerpt a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”- John 3:3 (KJV).
What then does it mean to be born again? Being Born Again is not a religious exercise but a life giving and eternally gainful experience, were you open your mouth and confess Jesus as Lord and believe in Him with your heart; after which the  life of God is imparted supernaturally into you, recreating your spirit man to become a new being (spiritually ); that has never existed before, granting you eternal life while on earth and ultimately, when you leave this world; as long as you continue in the things of God. John Tillotsen said, “He who provides for this life, but takes no care for eternity is wise for a moment but a fool forever.” Being  born again is the first step towards preparation for eternity. Being born again is a new birth, it is being recreated by God. Being born again may not be physically felt, but when you become truly born again, there is always an inner feeling of joy and unusual peace. “The fool said in his heart, there is no God...”-Psalm 14:1a(kJV)

There are several reason why you must be born again. I am only going to touch on four.
1. You have no future if you are not born again. The book of John  3:3 says: Jesus answered and said to him, Verily,verily, I say to you, Excerpt a man is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”-(KJV). That means without being born again, you can never  be with God, you can’t see his kingdom. If you can’t be with or see God, the alternative is the Devil, because there is no neutrality; either you are for God or automatically for the Devil. Don’t be wise in your own eyes; God is real, Heaven is real and Hell is real. Only a fool thinks otherwise (Psalm 14:1a).

2. You become a child of God. The book of John 1:12 says: But as many as received Him, to them gave  He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.”-KJV. If you have not accepted Jesus into your life yet, you are not born again and you are not a child of God. If you are not for God, you are against Him.

3. Being born again guarantees eternal life. The book of John 3:36 says: ‘’He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him.”

4.There is no alternative. “Jesus says to him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes to the Father but by Me.”-John 14:6(KJV). The only way to God is through Jesus Christ. He is the only one who died to pay for our sins and He is the only source of truth and life.

1. Recognize that you are a sinner.
Most people assume that as long as they never hurt others, live a humble life and attend church regularly, do good deeds, or worship God in there own way, they are not sinners. This assumption can be misleading and totally dangerous. You are not a sinner because you commit sin. The sin of Adam has passed on from generation to generation until this present time. Hence anyone born into this world automatically becomes  a sinner.  “Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men for that all have sinned.”-Romans 5:12(KJV). Salvation in Christ Jesus is not by our works, but by undeserved mercy of God, that has to be accepted by men for it to take effect in their lives. If you refuse to accept God's mercy through Jesus Christ, there is nothing else God can do for you, because it is impossible for Him to force you or anyone to accept His mercy. God's mercy through Jesus Christ was costly to God, but he is offering it to all mankind free of charge. All that is required is for you to accept it.

2. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ that he died to save you from sin.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”-John 3:16. “And they said, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and your house.”-Acts 16:31(KJV)

3. Receive Jesus into your life.
“Behold, I stand at  the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him; and he with Me.”-
Rev 3:20(KJV). “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even tp them that believe on His name.” John 1:12(KJV).

Now that you know the steps to take to be born again, you need to put it into practice for it to take effect in your life. How do you do this? What you need to do is to believe that Jesus died for your sins and you confess Jesus as Lord with your mouth. “ That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation.”-Roman 10:9-10.

Now is the moment of decision, God does not force anyone to make the right choice, but he advises us through His messages, to make the right choice, knowing that grave consequences awaits anyone who fails to make the right choice.
This is the time for you to decide for Jesus. Without Jesus, life on earth is a waste. Don’t postpone this moment of decision. You may never have another opportunity.
If you have truly made up your mind to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then say the prayer below loud and mean it in your heart.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner, I know you died to save me from sin, I ask you to cleanse me from my sin. I confess you as my Lord and Savior; you died and rose again to save me from sin. I invite you into my heart to be my Lord and Savior. Write my name in the book of life. Thank you Jesus for saving me. In Jesus name, Amen!
