Read John 3 – Truth and Love – Jesus meets with Nicodemus. He is a Pharisee (a sect of Judaism that was intent to follow the Law of Moses to the extreme of legalism), also a member of the Sanhedrin (a lower court that ruled over disputes within the Jewish community). He speaks to Jesus after dark, indicating he did not want to be publicly associated with Jesus. Jesus explains the necessity of being born-again, and explains what he means by this.
In Chapter 3, we see the famous John 3:16 in context: FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. Beloved, there is no plan B or plan C. Many paths do not lead to God, only Jesus, and He came to rescue ALL.
Next, John the Baptist explains Christ’s deity to his followers. He gently explains he must fade as Jesus Messiah becomes greater, and that he does so with joy. He also confirms 3:16 in verse 3:36 HE WHO BELIEVES IN THE SON HAS EVERLASTING LIFE; AND HE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE THE SON SHALL NOT SEE LIFE, BUT THE WRATH OF GOD ABIDES ON HIM.
Jesus message is so simple and open to all. Beloved, read John 3 for yourself and let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart. May your day be a reflection of His great love.
