Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." 

John 3:3 

Thought: The Bible is very clear about the need for a person to be born again 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 place ourselves in the condition of servants, because serving God or others is the way to demonstrate the love that is in us. So if we are not serving, God's love 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 serve the Lord and my neighbor well, every day that I can receive a double portion of your Spirit, because I know that only He enables me to practice love and service. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
