The born again experience
Sinners will not inherit the kingdom of God. That is why Jesus said to Nicodemus:"You must be born again to enter the kingdom of God." The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:17 "He who is IN CHRIST is a NEW CREATION, the old things have past away and the new have come."
If you have accepted Jesus Christ and have been born again of the Spirit of God you are a NEW CREATION, you are not interested in the same things any more, you don't go the same places any more, you HATE SIN. You want to be PURE AND HOLY and you seek to be pleasing to Jesus because you have experience HIM, He has made you NEW INSIDE, He has made you a child of God and you want to obey Him, you want to do what is pleasing to Him. You want to be baptized in water for washing off of your sin, you want to be pure and holy and acceptable to Jesus, you WANT the Holy Spirit, you want more of Jesus Christ because you seek the kingdom of God.
If you have experienced Jesus Christ you will not be the same person any more. You will be a different person, you will be a child of God.
Have you experienced Jesus Christ? Have you been changed? Are you as new creation? Are you IN CHRIST? If you do not desire to be baptized in water, to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to follow Jesus, to SERVE Him and to do everything for Him then you are not IN CHRIST, you are still in your sin and you have no hope of entering the kingdom of heaven.
Repent of your sin, CALL on Jesus Christ. Ask Him to make you NEW INSIDE so that you can be a child of God and have a desire for Jesus and for His kingdom.
May Jesus bless you.
