Be Refreshed and Renewed ( video & text)

Can a person be born again if they have already been born again? NO, sorry the answer is no! As much as you might like to or want to you can only be born again once and it is forever. In other words ,once  saved always saved. You can renew your self and refresh yourself in the Lord. It’s like washing the dishes. The Lord wants to clean us every day so we can be fit for the masters use. Sometimes like the dishes, we need to be washed and cleaned two or three times a day. “Not by works of  righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us .by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost” (Titus 3:5).You can be a new creature in Christ Jesus every day. It’s like being saved and born again anew everyday by simply praying to Jesus to create a new clean heart and spirit in you everyday. “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10). “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold ,all things are become new.”(2 Corinthians 5:17). “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26). You can’t help being you, and I can’t help being me,but we can all try to be more like Jesus.”It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,because his compassion’s fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”(Lamentations 3:22&23). Even though you can’t be saved again, you can renew your relationship with Jesus. He said: “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”(Hebrews 13:5). “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”(1 John 3:9). Let me try to explain this verse as best I can. How can we not commit sin if we are born of God? Because God only looks on our hearts to see if we have been cleansed by faith in the blood of his Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:7).The word sin means missing the mark. We will still sin everyday, and unfortunately do things or say things that displease God. We are rewarded by our works not saved by them.“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”  (Ephesians 2:8&9). After being saved and born again, any unconfessed and unforgiven sin, we will still have to answer for. That is why we need to take time listening to the Lord everyday. He will show you things you may have done or said that were not pleasing to him, and that we need to ask forgiveness for, and try to do better. However as King David said: “Mine iniquities are more than the hairs of my head.”(Psalm 40:12). “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6). So we don’t need to get into a big self righteous works trip, but try to strike a balance or happy medium. It’s like the lady said; ” Lord I thank you that I have not been unloving or unkind or done anything to displease you or offend anybody today, but, I’m about to get out of bed so Lord please help me today.”

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
