What Does it Mean To Be Born Again?

Jesus talked about being "born again."  What did He mean by that? 

In the third chapter of the Book of John in the New Testament, Jesus was approached by a religious leader named Nicodemus.    Jesus said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, except one be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God."

Jesus explained that He was not talking about a physical birth but a spiritual birth. We cannot be born a second time physically, but we can be born anew -- as a new person -- spiritually.

We cannot enter the kingdom of God just by being good, following rules, or thinking good thoughts. All these can be good, but what is important is a new creation. When we ask Jesus Christ to come into our hearts and lives as our Savior and Lord and ask for forgiveness for our sins, we become a new creation spiritually. The old life is gone; the new life has begun!
