You are Born Again not by choice, but by design (@jaysmoke)Blog
Did you know that there are billions of people who don't have the ability to become Born Again? Every one who heed the call to come to Christ was embedded with the ability to recognize His voice when Jesus calls and to come to Him. Jesus said in John 10:27 the sheep that are mine hear my voice and listen to me, I know them and they follow me.
It's like a remote and TV. The TV has an inbuilt receiver that connects with the remote. Not every TV has it so a Sony TV won't have the receiver for a Samsung TV. Being predestined is similar.
Paul said in Ephesians 1:4-5 just as He CHOSE us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.
So be happy, be grateful, be excited because you were chosen to be called sons & daughters of God. That is the craziest gift ever. You are one of the few chosen to walk the straight and narrow. You are blessed.
