What Makes You a Born Again Christian?

Last Wednesday Me and Dave (my Husband) went to our midweek service and I thank God for giving us a chance to be there. One thing that hits me in God's message that night was the phrase that the preacher said:
"Continue doing what God is asking you to do, small or big in due time you will have a good harvest. Do it NOW!"
It's been a long time since my last blog, I was not even able to continue my "Mould Me" blogs... and hearing that phrase struck me so much because I know God will work through this blog and I am neglected it for so long. :(

Moving forward.... to make up with the long silence, I will be starting with the question:

What makes you a Born Again Christian?

Are you a Born Again Christian because you have accepted Jesus?
Are you a Born Again Christian because you were baptised in water?
Are you a Born Again Christian because you are attending the church, joining the ministries, active in all of your Church activities?
I have seen so many people calling themselves a Born Again Christians... I am even one of them.

I call myself a Born Again Christian, because I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I was baptised in water, served our local Church, joined the ministries, but a thought in my head is wondering if I will be in Heaven once I died or if Jesus will return today, will he take me right away?

The thought of being left in His 2nd coming frightens me alot, knowing what I might face if ever I will be here... it really frightens me...


When you look at the mirror and saw your reflection you would know if you look good, extra good, super good or overly good. What if you will look at yourself as a Born Again Christian, do you find yourself worthy for the name?

Actually, no one can tell if you really are a Born Again Christian than yourself. Being a Born Again Christian is not just a name that you can boast to everyone by simply declaring it. Even if you have that BIG sign on your head stating "I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN" and you are not acting like one, you will never be able to fool God.

Christian - a follower of Christ

Being a Christian is not just about believing in Christ. It is following Christ, following His walk, His ways, His thinking in short becoming like Christ  and obeying what God wants us to be just like how Christ did. Therefore, let us be more sensitive with our walk, talk, act, Facebook post, tweets etc. specially if you've boast about you being a Christian.

Small steps are better than NOT stepping at all

Yes, it is not easy to be like Christ. No one is perfectly like Him the first time that person know about Christ, here is where the Holy Spirit works.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.- John 14:15-20

With this promise that we Christian should be holding on, nothing will really be so difficult to do. Hope to see you in God's Kingdom!
