The most important sentence among the 66 books of the Bible is: “You must be born again.” These words came from the mouth of God who became the incarnation, and the Lord Jesus made repeatedly His statement, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”(Please read John3:1-8). Unfortunately, many Christian churches no longer teach the truth of rebirth, but regard the faith as a religious concept. Therefore, people cannot see the light and salty of Jesus from believers’ lives, and that has caused churches and believers’ spiritual inanition and desolation.
Some Christians constantly pray with tears for revival, but see nothing happens; because few preachers proclaim the truth of rebirth with salvation in a boldly attitude. Instead, in the church we often hear that pastors teach the salvation for those who only use their oral expression as well as being justified by faith. But many believers do not change life! Among Christians, we also hear some people call themselves as born again Christians; and as a result, there are two types of Christians: born again and no born again. When the Lord Jesus comes again and judges the world, he will separate truly born again Christians from false believers, and both types of believers should receive their rewards and their punishments.
The reason why Christians and pastors do not teach the new birth taught by the Lord Jesus is that God did not talked about the lesson of the rebirth in the Old Testament, but talked about Abraham and his righteousness by faith. However, the whole Bible what we read today is not for Abraham and Moses, but it is the truth for those who like to believe in Jesus. Because the Lord Jesus told us that He is the way, the truth, and the live, we must obey all of His teachings, especially on the truth of rebirth. Only when people have a rebirth with the new life in Jesus, they are the believers of truly being justified by faith. Therefore, the sentence of “you must be born again” has become the most important one in the Bible. And when we fully understand the truth of rebirth with salvation, we may know the double meanings of the Cross, and then we are willing to take up our cross to follow the Lord Jesus, to abandon our old lives, and to renew our lives in the Lord Jesus, and then we may bear good fruits of the abundant life for glorifying the Holy Name of God.
