The Absolute Necessity of Being Born Again

John 3:1-7

“That which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not 
that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again,” John 3:5-7.

In 1959 military basic training, all soldiers were issued a free Gideon New Testament. It was used to measure rolled up socks and underclothes for foot locker inspection. Some soldiers kept their New Testament hidden for fear of the heathen element. After the Holy Spirit convicted me, I decided to come out of the darkness, behave and act civilized. Soon soldiers were coming to me asking counsel for their problems and personal baggage. I did the best I could to help. However, I finally admitted to God, I had no idea what I was doing. It was a curious thing, like Nicodemus; they all came in privately, ashamed to be identified with a Christian. With the Holy Spirit’s help, some finally went public with Jesus’ name and felt better for it. For fear of other Pharisees, Nicodemus was a secret disciple. However, after the crucifixion, he and Joseph of Arimathea buried Jesus body in Joseph’s tomb. Secret discipleship often shows shame because of peer pressure.

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).

Being born again is a matter of the heart. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).

THOUGHT: Quietly saying grace in a public restaurant is a test of Christian character.
