Verse of the Day
To family, friends, brother and sister of Christ. The verse of the day comes from the NT book of John
John 3:4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time in the womb and be born.
Read John 3:1-8 and 3:13-16. It talks about the New Birth.
Nicodemus was a ruler of the Jews, a man that stood out of the other for seeking the truth. He coming by night might be attributed to any one of four motives. 1) His fear of criticism 2) he desire for a private conference before committing himself to Jesus 3) his desire for uninterrupted conversation 4) his lack of opportunity during the day. It important that we understand that it at night when he came to Jesus as Jesus is the light of the world.
The statement born again meaning that it not a psychical but a spiritual birth, or born from above! `This birth comes from heaven. Jesus, who came from heaven, when He died He was raised from the dead and return to heaven. As it says in John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. This is the offer of a new life and a new beginning for anyone, young or old. Whatever our age or situation in life with God’s power it’s not too late to change.
It important for us to understand when we accept God gift through Jesus by asking Christ in our hearts and to be our Savior it a new beginning. When this happen the connection with us to them come from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is what helps us say in God’s will for our lives. This being the new birth through a spiritual births not a physical one. Because God is powerful, change is possible.
My Prayer is that this encourage someone that is seeking for a new beginning! That he or she understands there is a way to restart life over in a new way. Seek God first, accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, believe Jesus died for our sins and He was raised from the dead, you will have everlasting life. That Holy Spirit will help change you.
