"Grant Me Salvation"
I Want to be Born Again

 "Grant Me Salvation" This article is in response to a recent visitor's request for prayer and information on how to be born again. His request was:

"Please pray that God would draw me to Himself and grant me salvation in His Son, Jesus Christ."

Reply:

"What a unique request! I most definitely will pray for you. This is a prayer that Jesus loves to answer. In fact, I believe He is already drawing you to Himself by placing this desire in your heart. (John 12:32)

Becoming "Born Again" is what Nicodemus the ruler of the Jews could not understand. Jesus had said, "ye must be born again," and Nicodemus asked if a person could enter into his mother's womb for the second time. He did not understand that the instant he accepted Christ as his Savior, that the Spirit of Jesus would enter into his body.

Shortly before He gave His life on the cross, Jesus prayed what is known as, "The Great Intercessory Prayer," or "High Priestly Prayer."

He prayed first for Himself, then the disciples. Lastly He prayed for us, the ones who would learn of Jesus through the teaching of the disciples. He asked the Father, “that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me...," (John 17: 20-23).

Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in..." (Rev 3:20).

The Spirit of Jesus, literally abiding within each Born Again Believer, is what separates Christianity from every other religion. It is a beautiful miracle of God, wrought by the interaction between Jesus and the one who invites Him in.

You said to God, "Grant me salvation," and you can be certain that He will. Jesus stands ready every minute of every day to enter into your heart. He wants to be the very center of your life.

The Apostle Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Rom 10:9-10) NKJV.

When you study the above Scripture, you will find that there are things you must do to be born again.

  • You must believe in God, and that God has raised Jesus from the dead.
  • You must ask Him to come in. (Jesus is a gentleman, and will only come in when invited.)
  • You must tell someone that you believe in Jesus, and that you have been born again; thereby signifying your salvation an act of faith. (Rom 10:9-10)

This is between you and Jesus, and though it is often the case, you do not have to be in a church house to be born again.

But afterward, you will want to join a church where you will find other Christians, and learn more about living the Christian life.

You will also want to be baptized as a sign to all that you are at one with Christ.

Baptism, (the act of being placed under the water, and being raised up), represents being put to death and resurrected with Christ). This is something commanded by Christ that you will want to do as a new

Please stay in touch, and know that God loves you, and we love you."
