Tag Archives: Born Again

What I Really Mean ~

When I say I’m born again,
I mean that God has changed me
from the inside out . . .
in ways you might not see.

When I tell you I’ve repented,
I mean to God I have turned back
from my old sinful ways . . .
that kept me off the narrow track.

When I speak to you of God’s mercy,
I’m saying it’s something I don’t deserve
it’s only out of His abundant goodness
that for me He had some on reserve.

When I talk about my faith in Jesus,
I’m telling you it’s all about His grace
for without the Holy Spirit’s power
I would have no strength for this race.

When I say I am a new creature,
what to you I am really saying
Jesus knew that the old one was . . .
worth Him dying for and saving!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.

Once Again Reborn ~

Today,  I was feeling,
quite weary and down
I needed something
to turn my thoughts around.

So, I took out my Bible,
and I began to read
God’s every promise
to supply all I need.

Today, I was thinking,
I needed a faith lift
for mine seem to be
in some kind of drift.

So, I read the Scriptures,
about Jesus in the storm
and soon my every thought
He began to transform.

Today I was feeling,
spiritually forlorn . . .
but, as I read the Good News
I felt once again reborn!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:23

“Being born again,
not of corruptible seed,
but of incorruptible,
by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth
for ever.”

All Things Made New ~

All Things New ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Born again,
all things made new
all because Jesus
died just for you.

A new creature,
He has created
your life for His
He has awaited.

A new beginning,
a clean fresh start
now that Jesus
lives in your heart.

A living hope,
each day to renew
with Jesus everything
is made brand new.

Born again,
from darkness into light
Jesus now fills you . . .
with His holy might!

he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things
are become new.”

Heaven Bound ~

Heaven Bound ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Got me a new birth certificate,
on the day I was born again
I was so excited to have Jesus
come into my life and reign.

I received a brand new heart,
on the day I opened the door
inviting Jesus to come right in
not knowing what was in store.

He took a close look around,
saw what I could never see
He said He was going to form
His image right into me.

I had to give up the old life,
for the one He was to mold
He told me when He was done
I would be as good as gold.

It took Him quite a while,
to turn my life around . . .
but now my birth certificate
says ~ I’m heaven bound!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:5-7
King James Version

“Jesus answered,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,

Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into
the kingdom of God.

That which is born
of the flesh is flesh;

and that which is born of
the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again.”

Who I am In Christ ~

Follow Jesus by Susan Helmuth free photo #5035

Who am I in Christ?

I am fearfully
and wonderfully made
I am His new creation
I am predestined
I am chosen
I am adopted
I am a son of God
I am God’s child
I am a child of light
I am a child of day
I am God’s bride
I am God’s clay
I am God’s future
I am God’s hope
I am alive to God
I am destined
I am called

~~~~~~~~~~~

I am loved
I am bought with a price
I am redeemed
I am set free from sin
I am joined to the Lord
I am alive by grace
I am justified
I am forgiven
I am sanctified
I am reconciled
I am transformed
I am renewed
I am made perfect
I am dead to sin

~~~~~~~~~~~

I am a slave to righteousness
I am baptized with the Holy Spirit
I am a partner of Christ, Jesus
I am His temple
I am His building
I am His field
I am His branch
I am His follower
I am His fellow worker
I am His ambassador
I am the salt of the earth
I am the light of the world
I am sober-minded and watchful
I am armed
I am His warrior
I am His friend

~~~~~~~~~~~

I am being trained in righteousness
I am created for good works
I am a doer of the word
I am kind
I am humble
I am meek
I am patient
I am loving
I am fruitful
I am steadfast
I am gentle
I am faithful
I am never alone
I am never hungry
I am never thirsty

~~~~~~~~~~~

I am sealed for the day of redemption
I am called to eternal glory
I am the aroma of Christ to God
I am crucified with Christ
I am not ashamed
I am a sinner
I am forgiven
I am born again
and I am going to heaven!

Who are you without Christ?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ Throughout the Old and New Testament
we can find Scriptures that let us know who we are in Jesus ~

Alive, I’m Alive


Alive, I’m alive,
dead to transgression and sin
I’m alive, I’m reborn
now that Jesus lives within.

I’m alive, I’m flourishing,
I’m eternally bound
I’m alive, I was lost
now I’m thankfully found.

I’m alive, I’m at peace,
in Jesus, I am forgiven
I’m alive, forever more
a new life, I’ve been given.

I’m alive, I’m thriving,
His Spirit is breathing in me
I’m alive, everlastingly blessed
now that Jesus set me free.

Alive, I’m alive,
by grace and grace alone
I’m alive and I’m waiting
for Jesus to take me home!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 15:32
King James Version

“It was right that we should make merry
and be glad, for your brother was dead
and is alive again, and was lost and is found.'”

Though I am Born Again . . .

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

Though I am born again,
I still look the same . . .
the only difference is
I am baptized in His name.

I know I am still a sinner,
but I’m trying hard not to be
and I am sure that my faults
you still can see in me.

I am not yet perfect,
but I am learning every day
how to live like Jesus
and to follow His righteous way.

I know you don’t believe,
but I haven’t a single doubt
and I trust that my Lord
will work all things out.

I’ve got a lot of changing,
that I know I need to do
and I believe that my Savior
will help me see them through.

I’ve made many choices,
that I am not proud of
but I am counting on His mercy
and trusting in His love.

I know when you look at me,
I don’t look any different
but I know somethings new
and in Jesus I am confident.

All I am asking you,
is to give me some more time
before you begin to judge me
and condemn me for my crime.

Though I am born again,
I am not without blame
but the day I accepted Jesus
He took with Him my shame!
