Do you know what happens when you keep getting wounded over and over in the same spot. The skin eventually hardens like leather making each new wound increasingly more difficult.
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.
