"Dede's Walk With God"

Graham's Message Touches Many

You Must Be Born Again

    "Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, 'Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.' In reply Jesus declared, 'I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.' 'How can a man be born when he is old?' Nicodemus asked. 'Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!' Jesus answered, 'I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.'" John 3:1-7

    Your spouse must be born again. They must be saved and turn from the world of darkness to our Lord Jesus Christ who is the Light of the world. You and I must want every one of our family, extended family and friends to have eternal life to live in Heaven versus Hell. They must be born again! That is what Jesus Christ said, so you and I must believe it.

    Have you personally made that commitment? If not, do it today. All you must do is confess your sins, repent and ask the Lord to cleanse you from all your sins. He will then touch and change your heart of stone to a heart of flesh.

    "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10

    I love the weekends, as I believe that the Lord works the most in people's heart during the weekend. Weekends are time when you have time to slow down, relax and think about you, your life, and your future. It is time when you think about the past or about your present circumstances. This is the time when the Holy Spirit has opportunity to speak to your spouse and convict many men, women, and teens around the world to make changes in their life. These men and women are of all ages from being young to being grandparents who have allowed their minds to dream and wander from God's will and way in their life to thinking of evil desires and temptations of the world.

    In the Bible we read that we are to flee from the evil one as we pray for the Lord to protect us from the enemy. If you do not have a personal and strong relationship with your Lord Jesus Christ, you may fall into a trap from the evil one. Every day pray for your spouse to listen to the Lord's voice as Paul did on the Damascus Road.

    "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." John 3:16-21

    I pray that this week you have understood the importance in praying for your spouse. It takes commitment, perseverance and tenacity as you are in a spiritual battle for your spouse and marriage. Never forget that your Lord has given each of us all that we need as Jesus Christ alone is "The way and the truth and the life." (John 14:6)

    As you pray for your marriage and spouse this weekend, may you continue to seek your Lord to grow in the Lord as never before. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom, knowledge, insight, and understanding as to how you are to pray and live each day for the Lord and for your family. Strive each week to develop the qualities that the Lord wants you to have as you grow and mature in the Lord. We must be radiating the godly examples for our children and grandchildren. May you meditate on this scripture below to seek and grow in the Lord:

    "Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins. Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 1:2-11

    Do you and I not want a rich welcome when we get to Heaven? May you and I have a new urgency to continue to pray for your spouse and all prodigals who are today denying their Lord Jesus. Today pray for a mighty harvest this weekend around the world in churches and wherever our Lord wants to talk to His lost sheep. May the Men of God preach and teach the powerful Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ as God's Word will never return void. Today as I have taught this week, pray this scripture for all the men of God this weekend. You must be born again for eternal life.

    "...I give you his charge: Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction." 2 Timothy 4:1-2
