      Yes. I have repented of my sins, claimed Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for my sins , and asked him to be the Lord of my life.

      Yes. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that by faith in Him I have forgiveness of my sin and enjoy a reconciled relationship with God my Creator. I find in my heart that I love God more than anything!

      I am sure that i am a born again Christian because i have repented of my sins and believe the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ that even though i was dead in my trespasses, God made me alive in Him through Jesus Christ. It is by Grace through faith that i have been saved, i did nothing to earn this. And now i have a relationship with God through christ and have been given the holy spirit as a garentee of my salvation.

      Absolutely. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, my Savior and that I have eternal life with God through the blood of Jesus. I believe that the Bible is the Word of God and I claim the promises of the Word of God, by Faith I am saved!

      Yes, I am sure. I have saw the redemptive power of Christ’s grace in my life. I have saw the change that fully surrendering my life to him has brought. I know I am nothing more than a sinner saved by grace through Christ’s death on the cross, and resurrection from the grave.

      I am. I have understood that I am a sinner, Jesus through his death on the cross paid the ultimate sacrifice by taking on the sin of the world, including mine. His death and resurrection is gift to receive through repenting of my sin and surrounding my life to Jesus and accepting he is my Lord and Savior.

      Yes, I am sure. I can feel the Holy Spirit working within me and when I come short and sin the Holy Spirit immediately lets me know that I have sinned. If I am thinking of doing a sinful acting willingly the Holy Spirit warns me not to. There are many times when I read Bible passages that I see it in a new light and with deeper meaning – this can only happen because God is showing me more of the mysteries of Himself, His Son, the Holy Spirit and His Word through the Holy Spirit.

      Yes I am sure I am a born again Christian. The rebirth I have experienced spiritually, by Gods grace has helped me to understand not just my own, but others human condition- that we are ask flawed and we all sin. It has made me realize that there is not a thing, a prayer or a good deed I can do to make God love me more. He just does love me, the way we love our children and that He is always there for me, design for my heart and to be in a life giving relationship with me. It helps me to see others through the eyes of Jesus and I feel that it has made me a much more patient person as well. Felling Gods love, grace and mercy in my life has been the greatest gift I have ever received.

      The older I get, the more I think I am a deep sinner. I had hoped that as I grew as a Christian, I would become a more holy person. But the truth is, in the 37 years since I was saved by Christ, I have come to understand more and more that I am a weak man, incapable of doing anything for myself. I truly believe that there is no other way but salvation through Christ.

      I prayed to receive Christ as a pre-teen with my Mom. I have been growling in Him ever since, almost 50 years later.

      Yes. God has revealed His Son in me, and His Son is changing me. He is my life and my hope for the world to come.

      Nathan Safe
      Participant

      Yes and not because of anything that I have done. The only reason I have any business being in the presence of God one day is that He has chosen to save me. That Jesus has died in my place for the sins that I have committed. The righteousness I have in God’s eyes is Christ’s.

      Many times I ponder this question to myself because of the sinful things I have done or still want to do as a so-called born-again Christian. My behavior is worse than many unbelievers. I have done things that many unbelievers would never consider doing. Today, I prayed that prayer in this lesson. I do have a genuine desire to be a born-again Christian and all that’s connected with it. Maybe I want the benefits, the status, the hope this brings. But I haven’t done the work. I haven’t taken responsibility for my own spiritual growth or development. This would require obedience on another level for me.

      Yes, I have admitted that I am a sinner in need of a savior and accepted Jesus as my savior. Christ is the perfect sinless sacrifice who dies in my place so that I may have a relationship with God.

      Participant

      Absolutely. The Lord showed up to me in a basement 8 years ago (as an atheist) but it took me a year after that to truly make Him LORD and not just Savior. Since then, He speaks to me as a Father, protects and provides, encourages and corrects, and I couldn’t imagine life without Him. My works, although not perfect, have shown to be a sign of true conversion, by the Grace of God.

      Absolutely. I am a sinner, but Jesus Christ died for me and I am redeemed back to my heavenly Father.
      Romans 10:9 says “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
      I realized I was a sinner and separated from God because of my sin. Jesus died on the cross for me – John 3:16. I have confessed, I do believe and I am saved by grace through my faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8)

      Participant

      Yes. I know that I am a sinner destined for eternal separation from God, that I owe a moral debt to the Holy and Righteous God and I cannot pay it. But Jesus Christ, came to earth, lived a perfect life, died a perfect death, and resurrected 3 days later, defeating death and the punishment I deserve. I believe that his death and resurrection are the only means by which I can enter into an eternal relationship with God and be saved. Now the Holy Spirit dwells within me and helps to sanctify my hear that I may continue conforming into the image of Christ while here on earth.

      Yes, I have placed my faith in Christ as my Lord and Savior. Through my path of spiritual formation I am increasingly aware of my sin and I grow to hate it more and more. My desires for righteousness and holiness and fellowship with God and man grow in place of my desire for my own glory.

      Participant

      Yes, I am sure. I have recognized my sinfulness apart from Christ and my need for forgiveness of sins. I have believed (and do) that Jesus Christ is able to and has paid the penalty of my sin on the cross. Now, I have a “new relationship” with sin. I have been freed from its power and have recognized over the last several years how God is transforming my desires, attitudes, character, etc. by his Spirit.

      Participant

      Yes. When I was 7 years old, It was shared with me that I was separated from God’s Love because of the Sin in my life. If I wanted to be in heaven with Jesus, I must confess my sin, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and then invite Him to be Lord of my life.

      Participant

      Yes, I am sure that I am a born-again Christian. Years ago, this was a point of tension and confusion as I worried if my moment where I put my faith in Christ was’t “good enough”. After reading some verses and seeing the fruit of the Spirit in my life, I was convinced. I realized that it wasn’t about how good my faith was, because our salvation is not at all about our works, but solely based on the finished work of Christ and the faithful desire that God has to see people saved.

      Yes, I am a born again Christian. I have been raised in the Word of God since birth, and have known who He is. In seventh grade, while attending a Christian school, we had a chapel service which spoke to my heart. I felt convicted. I went home and asked my daddy, the one man who I knew was so close to God and strong in His faith. We talked about everything and right in our dining room, he led me to the Lord. Since then, I have lived my live strong in His word and try to live a Christ-like attitude.

      Participant

      I am a born-again follower of Christ. I recognized that my sin separated me from the Lord and that I was trying to live a good life through my own futile efforts. I acknowledged Christ’s sacrifice on the cross as God’s gift to me, despite the fact that I had done nothing to earn it. Jesus was the atoning sacrifice, not just for my sin, but for the sins of the whole world. When I accepted Jesus’s gift of salvation, I was washed clean from the sin that separated me from the Father and was welcomed in to God’s family.

      Yes, definitely! I will quote several verses for my answer:

      Acts 16:30-31
      Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
      They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.”

      Romans 10:9
      That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

      As a conclusion, John 3:16 clearly says that
      whosoever believes in Him (Jesus) shall not perished but have an everlasting life

      Yes. Because all who believe that God sent His Son to die on the cross for their sins can enter into an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ that starts in this life and will last forever. The eternal relationship with God in Christ is not limited by the length of one’s human life! God so loved the World that He gave his only Son, that who ever believes in Him with not perish, but have eternal Life. John 3:16

      Yes, I am! Satan has tried for years to have believe that I am not good enough to measure up to what God wants as His children. I let a life circumstance rob me of my self worth. God has been faithful to promise me through His word that I am who He says I am, not who I think.

      William
      Participant

      Yes I am born again. I have struggled with my spiritual walk my entire life because I have allowed the world to influence me on a daily basis at times. I believe that in our spiritual walk, Satan will try everything he can to keep ahold of us. This will lead to the trials that will endure in our walk. The longer you are following God, the more intense those trials will become. This is because as a new believer Satan does not have to tempt you very much to draw you away from God. That is why he uses family and friends at first. Later as we mature spiritually, he tempts us in different ways because of our spiritual growth.
