A woman comes over a sand dune after weeks without food or water and discovers a McDonald's. She stumbles to the counter to order and discovers a single hamburger costs $4,000 with a drink included. Knowing she can get more money, but not more life, she pays the price and almost with worship consumes the meal. Within minutes her thirst and hunger are satiated, but just in case it's a week to the next meal, she saunters up to the counter and asks for a repeat of the first order to discover it costs $1.00.
So it is with a life run aground. It will pay anything to get off the reef, but once free, it will dive back into the debauchery that lead it aground in the first place. When one's coming to Christ is nothing more than a plea to escape an enemy of life, Christ becomes a vending machine at best.
There is a better way. Go to the counter and order a new life. Pay for it by abandoning all that you have, which you 'think' sustains you. Then, broke as well as broken, discover this new Life loves to live fulled to the brim with possibilities, eager to empty itself so others can be filled. Being born from above is not only a one time event, but an introduction to a life that stands behind the counter of life and pays the $4,000 for each person who comes to the counter.
Now that is Christianity!
