John 3:6, 7 - Twice Born Required for Heaven.
John 3:6, 7 (NLT) Humans can reproduce only
human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to
spiritual life. 7 So dont be surprised when I say,
You must be born again.
Some people say, Im a Christian;
Im just not one of those born-agains.
But you can't be a Christian without
being born again.
Jesus said to a religious ruler named
Nicodemus, You must be born again (John 3:7
Are you born again? To be born again
means to be born from above. It means that
youve had a spiritual birth. If youre born
once, then youll die twice. You will ultimately
die both physically and spiritually.
But if youre born twice, then youll
die once. Your body will die, but your soul -
your spirit - will live on.
Jesus came to Earth to be born in a
manger and die on the cross for our sins, because
were all separated from Him. Weve broken His
commandments time and time again. Then He rose from the
Maybe youre ashamed of certain things
youve done and wonder whether God could ever
forgive someone like you. The answer is a resounding
yes. Not only can He forgive you, but He will

By coming to the Lord in prayer, you can
ask for His forgiveness, and He will wipe away
every sin youve ever committed. Hell forgive
it and forget it.
In the same conversation with Nicodemus,
Jesus said, For this is how God loved the
world: He gave his one and only Son, so that
everyone who believes in him will not perish but have
eternal life (John 3:16 NLT).
You can have everlasting life, and you
can know that you will go to Heaven one day. You

If you want your sin forgiven, if you
want to know that youll go to Heaven when you
die, if you want Christ to come into your life,
then call out to Him right now. [Greg Laurie from

Make a Choice
Maybe your past isnt much to brag
about. Maybe youve seen raw evil - and now you
have to make a choice. Do you rise above the past
and make a difference? Or do you remain
controlled by the past and make excuses?
Healthy bodies. Sharp minds. But
retired dreams. Back and forth they rock in the
chair of regret. Lean closely and youll hear
If only Id been born somewhere else.
If only Id been treated fairly.
If only Id had more opportunities.
Put down the scrapbook of your life and
pick up the Bible. Read Jesus words in John
3:6: Human life comes from human parents but
spiritual life comes from the Spirit.
God has not left you adrift on a sea of
heredity. You have a choice in the path you take.
Choose well! [Max Lucado Daily Devotional
