perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you.” (1 Peter 1:3-4)
Celebrate Your Spiritual Birthday!
This book is about Rejoicing and Celebrating your Spiritual Birthday.
Christians and the Christian church have given little importance to celebrate this
life-changing event. Can you imagine the impact of millions of Christians celebrating and sharing their Spiritual Birthday every year?
The book encourages born again believers in Jesus Christ to celebrate their Spiritual Birthday annually and to share their Spiritual Birthday Story as a remembrance and a testimony of God’s grace and love.
Jesus said, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they areborn again.” Jesus repeated, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying ‘You must be born again’.”
John 1:12-13 explains Jesus in your spiritual birth. “Yet to all who receive him and who believe in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – children not born of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”
Celebrate Your Spiritual Birthday
In Luke 15, Jesus told parables about rejoicing in Heaven and celebrating on earth over spiritual birth. Both, the shepherd, when he found his lost sheep, and the woman, who found her lost coin, called their friends and neighbor together and said, “Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep or coin.” Jesus revealed, “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God in heaven over one sinner who repents.” Jesus follows with the familiar parable of the Prodigal Son.
When the prodigal son returned home, the father ordered a feast and celebration. He told his other Son, “We had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again, he was lost but is found.”
Celebrate Your Spiritual Birthday every year to remember and rejoice that you were spiritually dead and are now alive, that you were lost but now are found.
Share Your Spiritual Birthday Story
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason
for the hope that you have. But do it with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)
Your Spiritual Birthday is the reason for the hope that you have in Jesus for eternal life. Your Spiritual Birthday Story is a gentle and respectful answer that most listeners will appreciate and accept. Your life before and after spiritual birth is a personal testimony of God’s love and grace.
Sharing your story and asking “When is your Spiritual Birthday?” may open a spiritual conversation and opportunity to introduce a lost friend to the Spirit, who gives spiritual birth.
Be There in Heaven
The final destination of born again followers of Jesus is Heaven. Jesus told his disciples that he was going there (His Father’s house or Heaven) to prepare a place for you. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you may be there where I am.” Your Spiritual Birthday ensures that you will be there to see Jesus in His glory. You will be there for the Big Celebration of Jesus. The Book of Revelation describes a celebration in the Heavens with millions of God’s Angels singing.
Celebrate your Spiritual Birthday on earth with anticipation of celebrating in Heaven forever together with Christ.

Children have a very special place and grace in the kingdom of God. The actual ages of “little children” and “children” are not defined in scripture. In the Old Testament, God’s treatment of children indicates a special grace based on their inability to know good from evil. In Deuteronomy 1;39, the little ones, the children who years earlier did not know good from evil, were allowed to enter the promised land and take possession of it.
Your second decade, between age 10 and age 20, is the most important and can be most dificult ten years of your physical and spiritual life. During this decade, you experience physical, mental, emotional, sexual and spiritual changes and decisions that impact your future years. If you are 20 or more years old, think of yourself on your 10th and 20th physical birthdays. You transitioned from a child to an adult. You no longer talk like a child nor think like a child nor reason like a child. you put the ways of childhood behind you.
Born Again Teens become born again adults, marry and become born again parents. God chose women to physically bear children and become moms. Moms have a very important role in their earthly family and in God’s family. Giving physical birth to a child creates a bond and love that knows no equal. A mom’s love and care for her child never ends. Likewise, children have a special love and relationship with their mom.
Youth Pastors have a very important and challenging position in the church and kingdom of God. In the kingdom of God, most spiritual births (75 t0 80 %) occur before age 20. In the church they are responsible for the spiritual discipleship and evangelism of preteens and teenager during their most dynamic and difficult decade of life. The physical, emotional and social changes experience between age ten and twenty are enormous. The expectations of youth pastors by senior pastors and parents are also enormous and high.
