After being born-again, what do we do?
After being born-again, we need to be baptized with water and baptize others with water. We are commanded to go into all the world and preach the gospel unto every creature. We are told to be like Jesus in word, deed, and belief. We must not only believe but also obey what is written in Scripture. Most importantly, we must be different from those around us so that people will know that Jesus has changed our lives. We do this by following a new way of living. We no longer steal or bear false witness against our neighbors. If anyone takes something that does not belong to them, we let them keep it as long as they put it back where they found it when they’re done using it. We keep away from drugs and drinking alcohol because now we have access to an endless supply of water in Christ’s life giving Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39). Finally, one thing we should never do again is live a life focused on self–now we are focused on living for Jesus who died for us so that any other way of life would be meaningless (1 Corinthians 3:13).
