Baptism does not make you Born Again

To be baptized in water is an absolute requirement for those who believe in Jesus Christ and wish to follow Him. But water baptism does not make you BORN AGAIN. If you have not repented from sin and from going after the desires of the flesh then water baptism is a senseless exercise.
When John the baptist was preaching repentance many came to be baptized, the Pharisees and the Sadducees also but John the Baptist rebuked them. We read in Matthew 3:7 about John the Baptist: “But when He saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism he said to them: You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come therefor bear fruit in keeping with repentance.” It is no use to be baptized in water if you do not bear fruit of repentance. We first have to repent, stop sinning and commit to follow and obey Jesus Christ. We have to first have a SPIRITUAL MEETING with Jesus Christ and be changed inside, be born of the Spirit of God before we are baptized in water or else water baptism has no meaning.
Many people are baptized in water and then they call themselves BORN AGAIN. They are not born again, they just got wet.
Water baptism is an absolute requirement, obedience to Jesus Christ, for those who have repented and committed to follow Him. Have you been born again of the Spirit of God and of water? Or were you just baptized?
May Jesus bless you.
