We as humans always think about something. Initially, when Adam and Eve were created, their thoughts were mostly about what to eat, or where to sleep. But a lot has changed since then. When man ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, their thoughts changed. Their way of thinking became full with evil intentions, with an evil heart. However, Jesus came with the opposite state, with a pure heart, completely different from Adam. Now we have a choice to obtain that same pure heart!
Everyone born of Christ, is the same as Christ and is of the blood of Christ, which is blameless and sinless. “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2 Timothy 2:19) You cannot step away from all untruth and iniquity if you are not born again. You can try, but you will keep failing again and again, because the old nature will continue to produce the same fruits. So how do you know if you are born again? Watch video to learn more.
There will not be anyone in Heaven who did NOT reject himself. How can you be born again without rejecting yourself and experiencing the Cross? Isn’t that the teaching of Jesus Christ? If you cannot reject yourself, you are not worthy of Him. If you cannot go against yourself, how can you lay your life for others?
