A Question for Jesus

Read John 3:1–8

 

Have you ever asked Jesus a question? It is likely that you have. Most people have questioned the Lord about something. Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council, believed Jesus had come from God, but he questioned Jesus about being born again. He wanted to know how that could happen. Nicodemus was thinking in the natural realm, not the spiritual, when he asked the question. But Jesus had an answer. Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit” (John 3:5). Everyone is born into the world as a sinner. To be a part of God’s kingdom, a person must be born again spiritually, by faith in Christ, and become a new creation in Christ. Each individual has a choice to make, and that choice has eternal consequences. You can choose life by being born again in Christ and receiving His Spirit, or you can choose death and die in your sin.

Have you made your decision?
 

New life begins with a new birth in Christ.

 
John 3:4–8
“How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb to be born.
Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.
Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
The wind blows wherever it pleases, You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes or where it is going.
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
