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.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The wind bloweth where it listeth and thou hearest the second thereof , but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:5-8 (KJV)
Sometimes it is so easy to be absorbed with the things going on in the world. As Christians, these temporary problems are nothing compared to eternity. I get all wrapped up in thinking about the things I can’t change, instead of focusing on the One who can change all things.
I need to think outside of the flesh, and look toward the spiritual things of God. The wars, the rumors of wars, plagues, and signs in the sky, are indicating and confirming the prophecies that were told of old. Christians are to be the watchmen and women of the world. We are to warn others that Christ’s return is near. That sinners need to repent and be saved! This message is timeless. Now is the day of salvation, so put on Jesus Christ. Acknowledge your sins, and accept the forgiveness that only Jesus Christ can give.
Be born again of the Spirit of the living God. Fill yourself with that purified Water, that purifies all who drink it.
Lord Jesus, this was a hard saying for Nicodemus to understand– that he must be born again. You are the One who reveals how this is done. You told Nicodemus he had to be born of water and the Spirit. John baptized with water, and You baptized with the Spirit. It is through You that we are saved, and not of ourselves, lest anyone should boast. Thank You for dying for us, and raising again to be at God’s right hand, where You continue to intercede for us. You have the keys of death and hell. I pray the Lord of the Harvest to send workers, and that many more will be saved. Help us not to neglect being watchmen, and warning people of what is to come. Keep us from getting distracted about all the things happening in the world. Amen.
