The Miracle of the New Birth
BIBLE MEDITATION: “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.” John 3:3
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Nicodemus was so impressed with the miracles Jesus had done that he wanted to find out more. He asked Jesus about miracles, and Jesus began to talk to him about births. It’s as if Jesus was saying, “Nicodemus, if you want to understand miracles, you’re going to have to become a miracle.” Now Nicodemus was an intelligent man. He was a ruler of the Jews and a Sanhedrin, and yet, with all of his learning, Jesus said to him, “Except you are born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.” People simply can’t understand spiritual things until the Holy Spirit of God turns the light on in their souls.
ACTION POINT: Do you know someone who has a lot of education, but no salvation? I challenge you to share this same Good News with him or her today.
