The answer is yes, even to you! - But first off, you must realize that we cannot understand how the Spirit moves, neither can we understand how it operates in our lives; Be honest, we do not even comprehend God’s dynamic forces at work not even when it comes to our own experience. All we know is this - When we surrender our lives to Christ we become “born again” This is a spiritual rebirth and we receive a new Spiritual nature. with it, comes the ability to abide in the vine, and to feed of off God.

Nicodemus, a highly educated Rabi, wrestled with this very same question; he didn’t understand it either, so He asked Jesus “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? John 3:3 In reply, Jesus explained to Nicodemus: Rather than being born physically, this birth is a change of heart; by surrendering your will to God and making Him the Lord of your life. It is the renewing of the mind. Then after salvation you must internalize your decision by being Baptized Rom 12:2“ So, Jesus is saying: “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. You might not understand it, but 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. And you are thinking - this is all good and well, but I still don’t get it! Don’t even try to decipher it, you won’t be able to: Just remember this: “The Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”. Heb 4:12 Take a hint: Jesus is saying: Study My Word diligently and you will discover that My Word is Spirit and it is life John 6:63. The Word will be a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path. Psalm 119:105
So, Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3:7 Jesus then further explained: look fellow- you don’t understand everything, just trust me and believe me, I do understand! I am talking about heavenly things, which I have seen. John 3:12 Nevertheless, if you want to inherit eternal life, you must believe. Without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Heb 11:6 (diligently seek is the key words here!)
If you really believe in my existence, you will also believe my salvation. If you come to me I can save you to the uttermost Heb 7:25 You might be tempted to think, “I just can’t make it and you are so right, you can’t but I can reach you, for sure Isaiah 59: just keep on asking Luke 18. 1 and I will keep you on the path and I will complete your faith unto the end 1cor 1:8 matt 28:20 I exist and this fact remains: you must experience a Spiritual rebirth and renewal, by believing in me- Trusting and obeying every Word. Do not miss your cleansing ceremony either, be baptized already!-By doing this you are making a statement, a public declaration, declaring that you will follow me, wherever I may lead you. - Or are you ashamed to admit it? You being, so bad, could become witnesses, testifying to God’s power through your unique salvation experience. It could soften another person’s heart. Don’t be ashamed of the Gospel, it is the power unto salvation. Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (You don’t want that!) mark 8:38
Say with me: I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;Rom1:16 Baptism is a outward symbol of and inward change, it is a ceremony testifying to your death to sin, this is burring the old man of sin, in the water grave, and it is the resurrection of your spiritual nature. You are born again now and this becomes your new birthday, celebrate it as such! A new life in Christ Rom 4:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; Mark 16:16-17
