What does it mean to be born again, and what does it mean to be christian? Is it as easy as praying and asking for forgiveness or is there more? If so what is it?

Thanks a lot of you're answers!

Ezekiel 36:26-27

26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
______
John 3:3 - 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.
_______
2 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.

____________

before God gives us a new spirit and a new heart

we wish to fulfill our fleshly desires and dont live by the spirit

but after we wish to be delivered from our fleshly desires and to walk in the spirit

its not as easy as just saying or doing anything

its about God working in us

we KNOW Hes working in us when we SEE the fruits of the spirit in our life
____________

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
_____________
dont be discouraged or hesitate to ask for forgiveness and repent if you stumble

be sure to keep your faith in Jesus (not yourself)
but examine yourself to see if there is something God wants to break from you

_________
Proverbs 24:16

16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Well, for starters, Jesus makes me happy and content with life.

What does it mean to be born again, and what does it mean to be christian? Is it as easy as praying and asking for forgiveness or is there more? If so what is it?

Thanks a lot of you're answers!

Hi Andy...Just something else to add :)
[h=1]Romans 10:9-10New King James Version (NKJV)[/h][FONT=&quot]9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation...:)...xox...[/FONT]
