“Jesus replied,”Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3 NIV
Read John 3:1-21
Will you die once or twice? Once should be enough! Many have a horror of the thought of dying. I admit the idea of immediate death does not excite me as I feel GOD still has work for me to do, but that is another story.
In order to die once, you have to be born twice. With that knowledge, in order to die twice, you have to be born only once. No, it is not a riddle. It is the truth of JESUS’ gospel message.
JESUS told us the miracle of being born twice. HE told us of how we are to be born again. When we accept JESUS as our LORD AND SAVIOUR, we are born again. When we are born again, we will only die once…a physical death. As saved believers, once we die on this earth we will a continuing life eternally in Heaven.
On the other hand, if you have not accepted JESUS, you will die twice. You will go through a physical death and you will die a spiritual death. This spiritual death will forbid you from Heaven to live without GOD for all eternity. You will have only been born once and then you will die twice.
As said; it is not a riddle. It is the truth. Like the line from the old Clint Eastwood movie…’Can you handle the truth?’.
Today’s prayer: “JESUS MY LORD, Thank YOU for dying to give me life. I have accepted YOU as my SAVIOUR knowing YOU have accepted me with all my faults and sinful life. Amen.”
