Day 8, John 3: A conversation with Jesus

TITLE: Day 8, John 3: A conversation with Jesus
THEME: Love Redeems

One of the marks of modern society is the desire to control everything. We want to control our lifestyles. We want to control the way we use our time. We do not like others to tell us what to do, especially the government or institutions. Jesus, in his conversation with Nicodemus tackles exactly that. Wanting to understand the science and knowledge of how God's Spirit works, the very learned lawyer in Nicodemus is stunned. He fails to understand what Jesus means by being born again. In other words, when Nicodemus puts on a worldly mindset, he simply cannot understand the work of the Spirit. 

Jesus has presented himself before Nicodemus when he says:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,f that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17)

When we cannot understand the work of the Spirit, see through the Person of Jesus. See through the eyes of God's love. 

What I Learned: A person of God seeks Jesus daily.
