Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
This is a rather strange way to start a conversation with one of the influential leaders of the Pharisees I would think, wouldn’t you? This man Nicodemus had come to Jesus by night and really had made a statement to Jesus rather than asked a question. However, Jesus knew what was really in Nicodemus’ heart and answered the question burning there.
I believe it to be the one question that burns in our hearts today. You may say, well not me, I don’t struggle with this question and I thank God for you, Amen. I actually do know of some who do not. Still, there are those who say they don’t but in reality, if they were truly honest, they actually do.
