"Verily, verily I say to you, unless a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God (Jn 3.3)."

Wouldn't it be great if everybody loved their neighbor as themselves, as Christ commands (Mt 19.19, 37.39, & Mk 12.31 & 33)? Until a man has been born again they can't do it because they are under the control of their sinful nature.

"We know that the whole world lies in wickedness (1 Jn 5.19)." "The works of the flesh are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, wrath, strife, envyings, murders, drunkenness and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5.19-21 & 1 Cor 6.9-10)."

This is where we come in. Christ commands us to - "Preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." To preach the gospel simply ask another if they have heard the good news (gospel) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." The instant they believe on Christ after the gospel is preached to them they become born again (1 Cor 4.15), their sins are forgiven (1 Jn 2.12), the Holy Spirit enters their heart (2 Cor 1.22) producing love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law (Gal 5.22-23) and they have everlasting life (Jn 6.47).

By preaching the gospel we give people the opportunity to believe on Christ and be born again. Then we can teach them to preach the gospel as well, making our world becomes a better place (IS 58.12).

Daily ask others if they have heard the good news and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." Then teach them to preach the good news as well so that others might believe on Christ, be born again and begin loving their neighbor as themselves (1 Cor 4.15).
