Of all the commands in Scripture, one of the most important and most demanding is that "You must be born again." We can ignore this command, but only at our own eternal peril. Jesus Christ said that you cannot "see" or "enter" the Kingdom of God unless this New Birth has occurred. John 1:12-13 define the conditions for the New Birth; first, to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord; second, to believe in His name. As a result of those two interrelated actions, we have the power, the liberty, to become children of God, because we are born of God. Only the "born again" possess eternal life. Those who experience the new birth also have new life and belong to God.
