“Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3
Nicodemus was a man who was well-respected in Jewish community and extremely knowledgeable in the Scriptures. And one night, he asked Jesus what it would take to gain eternal life. Today’s verse is Jesus’ challenging answer to that probing question.
Christians often talk about being born again. But too often, they get stuck in infancy or, if they do mature some, they get stuck in the “adolescence” stage of spiritual growth. Sadly, many become convinced that spiritual growth is all about gaining more and more knowledge. They’ll even say they are trying to go "deep."
But true spiritual depth isn't about going deeper; it's about going farther. Are you putting into action what you have already learned? THAT is the key to spiritual growth!
Thank God for bringing you to where you are right now, spiritually. Now, ask Him to point you forward and show you the next steps in your journey.
If you have not made a commitment to accept Jesus into your life, do so today. If you are already a Christ-follower, step up and move on to the next stage by applying what you already know.
