A born again believer in Jesus Christ is anyone who puts their faith totally in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. It is someone who is said to have “entrusted” Jesus Christ with their entire life; to have committed themselves to Him because of what He has done for them and what He has promised them.
He has paid the penalty for their sinful nature by dying on the cross at Calvary which satisfied the righteous requirement of the law and as a result paved the way for all who believe in Him to be eternally forgiven of their sin and to be resurrected with Him unto eternal life with the Godhead at the end of the age.
This is the foundation of the Christian faith; the rock of truth that every born again believer stands on with expectant hope.
Now, people don’t usually put their trust in something or someone who cannot deliver the “goods” so to speak; especially if it involves their very life. If the person or thing falters on what was promised, they usually will disconnect themselves from them; move away from them; give up on them; or disown them, just to name of few of the possible responses. They do this because they have lost “faith” in that person’s ability or the ability of the thing they relied on to deliver what was promised.
Though this behavior of giving up on someone or something for not fulfilling a promise is consistent with being human, it is not a behavior that is consistent with God. Though people may fail to fulfill their promises to one another, God never fails to fulfill His promises to those who love Him and who receive Him as their personal Savior and Lord.
Ponder these verses of Scripture:
Numbers 23:19 (NIV): God is not a man that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should change His mind. Does He speak and then not act? Does He promise and not fulfill?
2Timothy 2:11-13 (NIV): Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him. If we disown Him, He will also disown us; if we are faithless, He will remain faithful, for He cannot disown Himself.
Why not then, consider giving your life to the One who can save you from eternal damnation. To the One who promises and always fulfills His promises. To the One who did for you what you couldn’t do for yourself. To the One who promises you an eternal life, free of sin and corruption and defilement. An eternal life of fellowship with the One who created you and loved you to the point of dying for you so you could be reconciled and made holy.
In the climate of today’s relativism, it behooves you to ponder this thought; this piece of truth that can bring you to hope with an expectant joy that the world cannot give you, or promise you.
Give your life to Jesus Christ, the only one who can save you from eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire and eternal separation from the one who loved you enough to die for you…
