Following are eight evidences, given in God’s Word, that reveal if a person is truly born again. (There are more, but we have listed these eight so that you may use then to examine yourself to see if you are in the faith.)
According to Scripture, the following will be true of a genuinely saved person.
1. He Is a New Creature
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.” (II Cor. 5:17)
“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.” (Gal. 6:15)
There is also a poem which I believe describes the true essence of prayer.
Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire,
Uttered or unexpressed,
The motion of a hidden fire
that trembles in the breast.
Prayer is the burden of a sigh,
The falling of a tear,
The upward glancing of an eye,
When none but God is near.
Prayer is the breath of the soul. It is something deeper than words that is already present in our heart before ever being formed into words, and it abides long after words have faded away.
Letting Jesus Come into Our Need
Prayer simply means letting Jesus come into our needs. This means submitting to Jesus to use His power to alleviate our distress. As He does, He will glorify His name. And, for Jesus to glorify His name is to glorify the Father.
