“Thank You Master, I’m born-again”!

OCSM Sunday Sermon

June 9, 2019


As Jesus talked with Nicodemus, He said, “‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.’ ‘

How can a man be born when he is old?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born!’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

You should not be surprised at my saying, “You must be born again” (John 3:3-7).

“Born again / born from above.” The bible says that, ” Nicodemus had a real need. He needed a change of heart; a spiritual transformation.

New birth, being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life is imparted to the person who believes: The following scriptures will help you.

(2 Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 2:29; 3:9; 4:7; 5:1-4, 18).  We are “born-again” by having FAITH in Father God and accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.

“Why does a person need to be born again?” The apostle Paul in (Ephesians 2:1) says, “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins” (NKJV). To the Romans he wrote, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Sinners are spiritually “dead”; but through faith in Christ, you are a recreated spirit; Heaven or hell? There is no other choice….. Only those who are born again have their sins forgiven and can have a relationship with God.

Today, the Abba Father is giving you an opportunity to accept His Son Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and become a born-again child of God.

The sinner’s prayer below is a way to express to God your faith in Him and thank Him for providing for your salvation.

Dear Lord Jesus, I am a sinner and have broken your laws. I understand that my sin has separated me from you.

I am sorry and I ask you to forgive me. I acknowledge that your son Jesus Christ died for me, was resurrected, and is alive today and hears my prayers. I now open my heart door and invite Jesus in to become my Lord and my Savior.

I submit to His glory and ask that He rule and reign in my heart so that His perfect will would be accomplished in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

If you prayed this prayer and repented of your sins, “you are a born-again child of God”. Contact us at www.ocsministry and tells us about your new experience in the Lord.

We thank You Jesus and praise Your Holy Name….Amen.
