“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

In this solemn manner does our Lord teach us that no outward form of religion will suffice — but that we must be renewed by the Spirit of God and have our hearts changed, or we cannot enter into the kingdom of God. How, then, can men who rely on their self-produced morality hope to be saved? Will Christ withdraw His assertion? Surely not.

Much serious attention is due to this subject; so many being prone to satisfy themselves with an exemption from gross faults or, at best, with such a performance of duties as may be compatible with an unregenerate state. All having sinned, conversion is necessary for all; and this results from that inward and spiritual change to which our Lord refers, when He says, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

My soul, have you experienced this change? Have you been quickened to feel your lost condition? Have you been enlightened to see the requirements of the law, the provisions of the gospel, and the glory of Christ? Can you say, “Old things are passed away, and all things have become new”? Beware of a mistake here, for everything depends on it. There can be no salvation without a new birth, a new creation, a spiritual resurrection.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
