Being Born Again; What Is It? Rescued From being a Slave of Satan Rescuing the Soul From the World System, Sin and Eternal Seperation from God Rescued From Danger or Evil [Dictionary] Salvation (being Born Again) is the beginning of Christian Life that lasts for Eternity!! God has a specific, divine plan for each person who Receives Jesus Christ as Lord. Christian Salvation SET FREE
This Man Needs A Savior (someone to rescue him from the danger of death from the water.) Anyone who saves him from drowning will be his Savior. Only Jesus is able to save a person from the danger of SIN! A Savior is a Person that RESCUES
A Servant (Slave) obeys the Master (Lord). The Master gives direction to the servant. Romans 10:9-10 We are to declare Jesus our Lord. Romans 10: 9 - 10
Romans 10: 9 – 10 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
Two Conditions for Salvation 2. OUR FAITH (Receiving) God Extends HIS Grace (Undeserved Merit) to Mankind. I Thessalonians 4:3 tells us that it is GOD’s Will that all be (saved.) We Must Act upon GOD’s offer of Grace like receiving a Christmas Gift. 1. GOD’s GRACE (Giving)
Cloud of Sin Separates God the Son God the Son Came Down to Earth Son GRACE Holy Spirit Father Faith
I Thessalonians 4: 3 It is God’s will that you should be sanctified (saved, born again, set- apart, justified, free.)

Colossians 1: 22 Yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him (God) holy and blameless and beyond reproach.
You Must Be Born Again All Have Birthdays [Physical Birth] You Must be Spiritually Born Again. John 3:3 John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 3: 3 In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again.”
What Happens When You Are Born Again? 6. Your Desire Changes; You will Hate Sin. The Holy Spirit Immediately starts these transformations. The Holy Spirit Helps the New Christian for the rest of his life. God completely Equips the Christian for Everything He Expects from him. 1.Your Sins are Forgiven 2. Your Name is Written in the Lamb’s Book of Life 3. You are no longer a Slave of Satan – You are FREE! 4. The Holy Spirit Enters Your Heart (Spirit) 5. Your Life Begins to Change into a New life
Salvation Cannot Be LOST! Matthew 28:20 John 10:27 - 30 Hebrews 10:17 - 18 Our Salvation In Christ is Permanent; We never get Divorced from GOD’s family.
Hebrews 10: 17 – 18 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.” and where there has been forgiveness, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. Matthew 28: 20 Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. John 10: 27 – 30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
What Happened When We Were SAVED (Born Again)?? Old Things Have Passed Away All Thing Are NEW! II Corinthians 5:17
BAPTISM Baptized Into His Death. Death to the Life of Adam Raised Into A New Life The Life Provided By Christ. Romans 6: 1 - 11 Baptism is Not a requirement for Salvation!
TO KNOW HIM REQUIRES TIME WITH HIM II Peter 1:2 Psalms 27:4
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple. II Peter 1: 2 Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
ASSIGNMENT: Memorize John 3: 16 and meditate on its meaning. Continue daily Bible reading and prayer. Ask your Heavenly Father for something; wisdom, discernment, patience, self- control, love for others, etc. (this is a prayer of petition.)
