"But as many as received him
(Jesus), to them gave he
power to become the sons of God
(Born Again as sons into the family of God), even to them
that believe on his name: "
"Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of
the will of man, but of God."
The Bible - Gospel of John -
Chapter 1 - Verses 12-13
All that receive Jesus Christ are given the power to become a son in
the family of God. This receiving is believing on Jesus' name.
Believing enough to call on Jesus name as Personal Saviour
These receive the
New Birth from God, not from any man, not from themselves.

change in the believer that only God can make. He or
she is a new person. Being made a son (new position) and made
a new person (being).
Did you get the
change you made (and you most certainly need to make some
changes), but a
change in you that God made.
What Change is that?
* Do you suddenly want to read more of the Bible to discover more

"I am forgiven."
"I am going to Heaven, wouldn't you like to know?"
If this is what happened to you, it sounds like you
The Feeling is Gone
If this happened some time back, your zeal may have cooled somewhat.
This does not mean that you lost it. Loss of zeal means your
backslidden and need to repent of sin and rejoin the Father
and the Son in
Some have called on Jesus as their personal Saviour, but did not get
change. They have received the planting of the seed of
the Gospel, but have not received Jesus.
Don't Stop Now
Of course these would like to know more. Not promising to do
anything, but just
