Jesus answered him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless a person is born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified], he cannot [ever] see and experience the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter his mother’s womb a second time and be born, can he?”
Jesus answered, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh [the physical is merely physical], and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Do not be surprised that I have told you, ‘You must be born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].’
The wind blows where it wishes and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can these things be possible?”
John 3:3-9 AMP
This is the spiritual basis for the rebirth of NEW GHANA 2057.
This is our moment in time as a nation and as a people for transformation, change, re-dedication, reformation, renewal, re-focus, re-direction, re-prioritization, re-orientation, re-engineering, realignment and or review our destination or place in the comity of nations.
The old ways of executing our plans and programmes as a nation and a people have woefully failed us. We have failed with our nation-building efforts, otherwise how could we have gone back to become 'tribal bigots' again and thereby, undermine as well as question why our 'fathers fought for our independence as a nation and as a people?
This, then, is the POINT OF DECISION for you now and personally as was faced by Nicodemus, please.
The decision time is now dawn for everybody, every Ghanaian to answer for himself or herself what Nicodemus was faced with in his encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ for our individual rebirths as well as the collective for the NEW GHANA 2057.
We need new narratives.
A 'different born-again' people for the new phase of our individual as well as collective long journey towards 2057 for the Centenary Celebrations of a NATION REBORN and starting now.
This is a call for 'new discipleship' devoid of tribalism, sectionalism, bigotry and selfishness; and I beseech you to join the 'QUEST FOR NEW GHANA' unless you like or still comfortable with the current state we find this nation and the tangent it is going, the bleakness of what the current future holds or the future you are working very hard to leave for your children and their own children too or worst, your own descendants?
The LIVES OF EVERY GHANAIAN YOUTH MATTER, irrespective of education, language, hometown, creed, religion, denomination, class, colour and or tribe.
The future of any nation and people depends on how they shape the present, knowing how tortuous their past have been, especially the level of divisiveness, rancour, deviousness and bitterness.
We cannot afford to fail this time round as FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION so sign on now for the change you desire.
We need a NEW GHANA with a level playing field of equal opportunities for all without any political colouration as the new basis.
Indeed, the days where qualification or advancement in life or vocation is not based on merit but tribalism or political patronage should be a thing of the past. Definitely, not part of the NEW GHANA, where MERITOCRACY IS THE ONLY YARDSTICK in all discussions and access to opportunities by every Ghanaian youth.
We are going, heaven knows where we are going, we know we will. It will be hard, we know and the road will be muddy and rough but we will get there, heaven knows how we will get there, we know we will. WOYAYA!!!!!
This is not a political movement but a social vehicle for change.
