John 3:3-8 – “Jesus answered and said to Nicodemus, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
RJ: I love this discussion, Jesus trying to explain to Nicodemus, a very wise ruler of the Jews, that we must accept the unknown and trust God. We will not understand being “born again”, but we must trust that when we ask Jesus into our lives He blesses us with the Holy Spirit, the old self is gone and we are a new person. Please don’t be Nicodemus, trust Jesus words!
