John 3: 3
In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."
Born again, what exactly does that mean? Of course Jesus wasn't telling Nicodemus that he had to be physically born again. He meant spiritually Nicodemus, and in turn we, must be spiritually born again before he or anyone could see the kingdom of God.
For the life of me I can't understand why some people are turned off by the phrase "born again Christian", but they are. Sometimes you can see an immediate change in a persons demeanor once you tell them you are a born again Christian. I think sometimes they feel it's a disease. However, if they truly want to get to know you and be your friend, they soon realize that being a born again Christian doesn't mean you are perfect, but rather you just believe in Jesus.
A few days ago I had this experience with a new acquaintance and a funny thing happened. Once I explained what a born again Christian was, he said, "oh yeah, so am I, I just thought I was only a Baptist". :) I laughed to myself thinking now on to telling him what a Baptist is.
