“You are born again by the Spirit of God. ” John 3: 3-6
“The instant that I was born again, I felt wonderful. It was just like a two-ton weight had rolled off my chest. I was rejoicing and I felt happy spiritually.” I BELIEVE IN VISIONS by Kenneth Hagin
There’s Got to be More to Christianity!
“’Consider carefully what you hear,’ He continued. ‘With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.‘” Mark 4:24
God gives us the oil of holiness. We become like new wine skins , not by your own strength. This means there is no self-effort. But it also means there is no more agenda. Once you give God everything that you have, you die to yourself. The old wine skin has to go.
There may be a period when your faith is trained and tested. God only wants to get your attention.
We must keep going and seek Him. God said that you should seek and you will find. This is an authoritative statement with only one proviso: it must be done on God’s timing. He didn’t say seek him until you find Him. With holiness, you will see Him.
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.” 2 Corinthians 9: 10
So if you believe a little, you will get a little, but if you believe a lot, you will get a lot. Once you soak yourself in the spirit of holiness, you will receive perfect love, which was given at Pentecost.
When you receive Jesus as our personal Saviour by faith, His life enters your spirit. You are now what Scripture calls born again. John 3:1-9. You have Christ’s brand new life inside you. His purity, love, peace, truth, and blessings are now inside your spirit. You are beautiful and perfect within.
As a child of your Heavenly Father, you are invited to communicate with Him through prayer. Prayer is easy — you simply share your heart with Him. He loves to answer our desires. Prayer is very fulfilling and powerful.
You will also want to meet some other Christians who understand the love of God. Fellowship can be great fun. Visit some of the churches in your areas. Christ’s Holy Spirit dwells within you, and He will direct you to a good fellowship if you ask Him to.
Just like a newborn baby needs nourishment and care, so do new babies in the Lord. The Bible is full of truth that is like fresh milk and food for you . As you read it each day, it will nourish you and reveal wonderful things about God’s love and His ways. Here are the gift, which you will discover by reading the Word of God, which:
Brings light into darkness Psalm 119:130
Is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path Psalm 119:105
Secures blessings Ephesians 1:3
Creates Romans 4:17
Ensures answers to prayer John 15:7
Dispatches angels Psalm 103:20
All of God’s goodness belongs to you when you are in Christ; so enjoy!
Who are You in Christ?
The Lord loves you with an everlasting love and has promised to give you a future and a hope. With loving kindness, He has drawn you to Himself. It is through this love that He has called you to be His dear child.
God’s love toward you is patient and kind. His love will never fail. His love for you is so rich that He gave His only begotten Son. You now have an unbreakable, eternal covenant with Him:
- You are born again by the Spirit of God. John 3: 3-6

The Lord is the strength of your life.
Nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, your Lord. You are not under any guilt or condemnation. Romans 8:1 Refuse discouragement because it is not of God. God is a God of encouragement. You flee from temptation in Christ. James 4:7 But if you do sin, you have an advocate with the Father, 1 John 2:2 who is Jesus Christ. Confess your sins and forsake them. God is just to forgive and cleanse you.
Because Christ has set you free, you are free indeed. Romans 8:2 You have been delivered out of the domain of darkness and you now abide in the Kingdom of God. God has not given you a spirit of fear but of love, of power, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
He will make your path straight.
Because Christ dwells within you, you know wisdom and instruction. When you lack wisdom, ask in faith and it is given to you generously. James 1:5 Jesus will make His words of wisdom known to you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight. Proverbs 3: 5,6
God knows what you need even before you ask.
“Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all the things that you need will be added onto you” Matthew 6:33 for God knows what you need even before you ask. The Lord will give you grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from you as you walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11 Jesus came so that you would have life in its abundance. John 10:10 Grace and peace are multiplied in you through the knowledge of God. 2 Peter 1-2
You are very blessed and favored of God Genesis 12:2 and you have been called to be a blessing to others. You now have a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience, you are God’s workmanship, created for good deeds, which God prepared beforehand that you should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
In Christ, you can do all things, because He strengthens you. You put on the full armor of God. The Lord protects you from all evil; He guard your going out and coming in from this time forth. You are blessed because you trust in Him.
The Lord brings you health and healing.
Praise the Lord with all that is within you and do not forget all of His benefits. Psalm 103:2 Your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. When I cry out, the Lord hears you; He delivers you from all your troubles. The Lord is close to you when you are broken-hearted and save you when you are crushed in spirit.
Because you make the Most High your dwelling — even the Lord, who is your refuge — then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone. Psalm 91:9-12
Because you love the Lord, He will rescue and protect you from all accident, harm, sickness, and disease. He is with you in trouble and delivers you. With long life, He satisfies you and shows you His salvation. Psalm 91:14-16
Because you believe in Him, you will live for all eternity.
