Jesus said in John 3:3-6, unless a man is born again he cannot see or enter the kingdom of God. A man is spiritually dead because of sin (Gen. 2:17, 3:1-24; Rom. 6:23). He is separated from God thus being spiritually dead. That is why before we are born again we cannot understand the Bible, because it is spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14; John 6:63, John 16:13).
Our spirit is dead because of sin and we are unable to enter into God's presence, have fellowship with Him, or understand His Word. There is nothing that we can do on our own to erase those sins. Only the Blood of Jesus can remove sin from our lives and cause us to stand Holy and pure before God (Hebrews 9:12-15; 10:1-22; Isaiah 1:18-20).
The Bible says that the way to be Saved or Born Again is to repent of your sin (in other words turn away from evil) recognizing that you are a sinner, asking God to forgive you, and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (Acts 2:38-39; John 3:16-18). We are to believe in His sacrifice for us; that He gave His life at Calvary to redeem us from spiritual death, sickness, and poverty (1 John 3:16; Gal. 3:13014; I Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4-5; 2 Corinthians 8:9).
Romans 10:9-13 says if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness, (right standing with God) and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever (that's you) shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
If you will ask the Lord Jesus into your heart right now wherever you are, you will be saved. Just say to Him, Dear God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I repent of my sin and ask Jesus to become the Lord of my life. I now accept Him as Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name, Amen.
If you prayed that prayer from your heart, you are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17-21; John 6:37). Old things are passed away and everything has become new. If you did not make that commitment, do yourself a favor and look up the scriptures asking God to help you to see the truth in them. If you ask Him, you will be able to see the truth (John 14:6).
