WORD OF THE DAY (THE JOY OF BEING BORN AGAIN)

John 3: 1-21; Read.

Nicodemus was a highly educated man in religious matters, yet he didn’t have the slightest idea what Jesus was talking about when Jesus told him, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." He knew a lot about God but he didn’t personally know God. Being the Son of God, Jesus had a uniquely intimate relationship with the Father that intrigued Nicodemus. He sought to understand it, and Jesus told him this same kind of relationship was available to him through being born again. So the big question Nicodemus had was; "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 explained that being one with God spiritually only happens when one spirit is reborn and regenerated by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of flesh is flesh; and that which is born of Spirit is Spirit. The number one thing that sets Christianity apart from religion is the born again experience. We have been born from above, we have God Holy Spirit living in our spirit, and we are in constant communion with the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. As a believer you have the right to that relationship, and what more Love could you need than that!
