"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily I say unto thee, that he that is not born again cannot see the kingdom of God."
THOUGHT: The Bible is very clear about the need for a person to be born again in order to receive eternal life. We are born again when we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and invite Him into our lives. By accepting Jesus and calling him Lord, we put ourselves in the condition of servants, because serving God or our neighbor is the way to demonstrate the love that is in us. So if we are not serving, the love of God is not in us, and if so, we need to think about whether, in fact, we are born again and are new creatures.
Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for allowing me to be born again, have a new life, be a new creature, and still allow me to live in Your kingdom. Help me to understand what the attitude of serving the Lord and my neighbor is, that I may receive an overflowing portion of the Spirit each day, as I know that only He enables me to practice love and service. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
