Is there a “Born Again” moment or does it take a lifetime to be “Born Again”? We answer these questions in this podcast…

Read Notes

In the last episode we answered the question of "Why" we need to be "Born Again". In this episode we answer "How" and "When" we're "Born Again".

The steps to "How" and "When" we're "Born Again";

Step 1 - The Spirit leads us to Christ;
The Spirit of God brings us to a place in our lives where we have the opportunity to recognize that this life and all it offers is filled with futility.

Step 2 - The Spirit Plants the Word in our Heart;
The Word of God, through the Spirit is planted in our heart until the moment when our faith will embrace the promise of God through Christ.

Step 3 - The Spirit Initiates Conception When Our Faith is Bonded with The Gospel;
The Spirit enlivens our faith and we accept the "redemption" given to us in Christ which wipes away our the sins of our past and restarts our lives over again as a new creation, or new spiritual person, in Christ...

Step 4 - Life; Life begins at conception, not Birth...
By faith, we now have a New Hope in the everlasting nature of the price that Christ paid in His own Blood for our redemption and by faith we embrace it completely... Through His death we have life and we now walk by our confidence that Christ appeared in the world and revealed God's plan for saving us through Him, as the Messiah of the entire creation...

Step 5 - We Grow in the Amniotic Fluid of Redemption;
We are strengthened by the Word for our own resurrection because the Spirit convinces us that God raised Christ from the dead... We accept by faith our redemption by Christ through the blood of His sacrifice because of His love for us, and our hearts are purified and cleansed by that redemption through His blood...

Step 6 - Labor
As the Word abides in us, it grows in us, and becomes fruitful in us, because our hearts have been purified by our redemption through the actions of Christ, and we agonize for those who don't hear Christ. Our spiritual life is driven by the Word and the Spirit.

Step 7 - Birth;
We now have access to the power to produce the ultimate result of our redemption, the ability to express love from a pure and sincere heart...
