The New Birth

Many preachers claim that if an unsaved person accepts Christ as their Savior, they have experienced the New Birth, or “born again”. However, can such a claim be justified in scripture?

I question this because of my own ‘New Birth’ experience (John 3:8). What happened was that God placed a “new heart” within me (Ezek 36:26). This experience allowed me to “see” the state of God’s kingdom inside the churches, which to me was horrific.

Works of Faith

The New Testament is very clear that God the Father requires every Christian to bring forth spiritual “fruit” (John 15:1-9) into His kingdom through “works of faith” (James 2:20-26).

The spiritual “fruit” being referred to represents the lost souls in this world — those who are living a life of sin (Luke 15:10). This is because Satan has ensnared them in unbelief (Heb 4:6). The only way to “save” them (Rom 10:14) is for God’s people to preach the True Gospel and to demonstrate their faith using the Gifts of the Spirit (Mark 16:20) that produce ‘works of faith‘, as stated in the scripture verse below.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations [by My disciples in My churches]; and then shall the end come.” — Jesus speaking

(Matt 24:14)

…but though our OUTWARD MAN perish, yet the INWARD MAN is renewed day by day.”
