I describe the born again experience as one of change. If there is a change in your life, the way you live it, the way that you speak, then I believe that you have been born again. If there is no change then you have not been born again. I am sure that there are those who would disagree with me but if there is no witness, there is nothing. Hope that helps clear it up some.
THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY KATHLEEN...IT IS SO TRUE, IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF CHANGE IN A PERSON'S LIFE, IT IS DOUBTFUL IF THAT PERSON REALLY EXPERIENCED A NEW BIRTH...MANY TIMES THIS CHANGE IS GRADUAL, OTHER TIMES IT IS INSTANT...THE MAIN EMPHASIS I BELIEVE WHY PEOPLE DON'T EXPERIENCE THE CHANGE IS BECAUSE THEY NEVER TRULY REPENTED OF THEIR SINS...WE HAVE A FASHIONABLE MODE WITHIN THE CHURCHES FOR A LONG TIME WHERE PEOPLE JUST COME FORWARD AND CONFESS THE LORD AND ACCEPT THE LORD...WHICH IS A GREAT START...BUT THE GOSPEL INVOLVES FIRST OF ALL FAITH, WHICH MEANS WE BELIEVE IN CHRIST'S DEATH AND RESURRECTION, THAN WE REPENT OF ALL OF OUR SINS (IT HAS TO BE DONE WITH HEART AND WILL) THEN WE RECEIVE THE LORD AND HIS HOLY SPIRIT....WE ARE THEN READY TO HAVE OUR MINDS RENEWED FROM THE POLLUTION AND TOXIC WASTE OF THIS WORLD...AND WE RENEW OUR MINDS BY THE WORD OF GOD, BY PRAYING IN THE HOLY GHOST AND BY LIVING BY FAITH...WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD...BY FAITH WE ARE SAVED, IT IS A GIFT OF GOD, NOT OF OUR WORKS SO WE CAN BOAST...SO HEARTS ARE SOMETIMES PREPARED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR YEARS BEFORE THE ACTUAL TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS...IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT ALL THE ABOVE HAS TO HAPPEN IN A SPECIFIC ORDER BUT REPENTANCE IS SO IMPORTANT. REPENTANCE MEANS WE TURN AROUND AND NOT SIN ANY MORE, WE WALK IN THE NEW LIFE, WE HUMBLE OUR SELVES AND SUBMIT TO THE LORD AND HIS WORD...HOPE TO CORRESPOND FURTHER WITH YOU ON THE SUBJECT IF YOU LIKE TO DO THAT...AND HOPE TO BE YOUR GOOD FRIEND IN THE LORD KATHLEEN, GOD BLESS YOU RICHLY IN ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE AND MINISTRY...RADMILA
I do believe that true repentance is the key. I don't think that we are seeing true repentance, there is just a lot of pretenders out there but God knows the hearts. I believe when we begin to see true repentance that we will see revival like we have never seen it before.
