Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 29

29. No one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (John 3:3).

The kingdom of God cannot be perceived intellectually. One cannot be reasoned into understanding its core realities. Instead, a man must recognize his need of God, bow low in repentance, and lift his eyes in faith before that kingdom will come into view. That’s the essence of Nicodemus’ struggle. He has searched for sufficient signs to believe, but at the end of the day, signs do not convince one of spiritual truth. Faith does. Nicodemus came to Jesus not because he believed, but because he was afraid not to believe. He wanted to rule out Jesus’ claims and His possible origin so he could continue life as he had known it. He wanted answers, not relationship, and probably not even hope.
