The Bible tells us that we can be born again. We find this truth in the story of Nicodemus, who came to Jesus by night. Jesus told him, “unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus was as religious as anyone in Jerusalem, but he needed a complete conversion, a new birth. Being born again is not what we do. Being born again is when we quit trying and begin trusting Jesus.
To become a part of God’s Kingdom you must be born again. You must receive God’s kingdom as an infant. Babies don’t have preconceived ideas. They don’t think that they know it all and can run their own lives.
Because we have been born again we recognize all of the rest of God's children as our brothers and sisters. They are part of our family. We are part of their family. We see them as the dearly-loved children of God. We will not do anything to disparage our brothers and sisters.
As born again Christians, people adopted into the family of God, we are called to form a new kind of community where people show each another the same grace we have received from God. "You must be born again", John 3:7.
