Bahan Alkitab: John 3:1-21; Genesis 3; Matthew 19:13-15
One night, Nicodemus came to Jesus to know more about Jesus. Jesus told him that no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.
Nicodemus was quite confused, how an old man can be born again?
Jesus explained to him that because of GOd’s great love for us, He sent Jesus into the world to pay for our sin. God sent his Son to save us. Jesus explained that God the Holy Spirit works in our hearts, giving us faith and new life. That is what Jesus meant by be born again. So when we come to Jesus, we come full on trust that God gives us to believe that he is our heavenly Father.
Nicodemus was still quite confused when he left. But Jesus know that Nicodemus needed Jesus to save him. same as us. because we all born sinners. But we praise Lord because Jesus died on cross for us, and Holy Spirit helps us put our trust in Him.
