The Bible assures us that if we are “in Christ” _____________________________________________
Our natural inclination, what we are accustomed to do, is __________________________________.
Jesus instructed Nicodemus to be _____________________________________________again.
In a few words, describe how you understand being born again.
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Gal. 2:20).
Paul said: “I have been_____________________________with ________________________________ .”
In your own words describe what it means to be crucified with Christ.
To experience the new birth, all we have to do is open our hearts to Jesus, and let Him work His will in our lives.
This is incredibly good news. We cannot change ourselves. But as we come to Jesus, He changes our lives. He will not cast us out; He loves us; He accepts us just as we are as we come to Him. We come as we are, but we do not stay as we are. There is power in the gospel of Christ to change us. That is wonderfully good news.
