3. DEFINITE ASSURANCE GIVEN TO THOSE
WHO EXPERIENCE NEW BIRTH
Assurance of an inward Witness
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
Assurance given by the Holy Spirit
I John 4:13
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
Assurance is evident by new love for Christians
I John 3:14
We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Assurance is evident by new life
II Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Assurance, a result of believing
I John 5:13
These thing have I written unto you t5hat believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
2. NEW BIRTH THE ONLY ENTRANCE
INTO GOD’S SPIRITUAL FAMILY
The lost are:
Blind and cannot see
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Ignorant and cannot Understand
Nicdemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Helpless and cannot Enter
Jesus answered, Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of Water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Sinful, and first birth is Rejected
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Depraved and new Birth is a Must
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

1. BEST TEXT TO AROUSE AN INTEREST IN SPIRITUAL MATTERS
Life is Brief
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Life is uncertain
Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Death is sure
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the Judgment.
Christ may appear any moment.
Therefore be ye also ready: in such an hour as ye thing not the Son of man cometh.
No escape for procrastinators
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
Diligently study to meet new Master’s approval.
II Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Attend the Lord’s house every Lord’s day
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Tell what great things the Lord hath done.
Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
Be identified with his Lord in Baptism.
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
In Action Example
And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
