We came into this world from mom and dad,
A little babe destined to grow.
The first few years we were seldom bad,
Delightful discoveries, learning words to know.
But as we got older
We noticed we could be bad rather than good.
Life seemed simple with dad and mother,
Brothers and sisters were somewhat misunderstood.
The teenage years and growing into manhood
Was difficult, so we tried harder.
The one word that stood out, was to be good,
But really how could I get along with my sister ?
But did you know, you can be born twice in a life ?
Once in my mother's womb
And with God is the other,
The second birth will be your new resume !
Finding a new family of friends,
Singing His songs, hearing His Word,
Seeing my old life coming to its end,
My thinking was anything but awkward !
Jesus said to Nicodemus
You must be born again,
Really, again from my mother's womb ?
Nicodemus pondered, how can this be ?
Jesus replied, very truly I tell you
No one can see the Kingdom of God
Unless they are born again.
Born again is not a religion
It is a life changed by God !
