“Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.'” John 3:3 NIV
Read: John 3:1-21
Did you hear of a cross eyed teacher who could not control his pupils? O.K. It is a bad joke, but it is a great example of how we can say one thing and it is heard as something totally different. Our English language makes it so easy to confuse the true meaning of our statements at times.
JESUS even had the problem! Nicodemus visited JESUS late at night. JESUS explained to him how you must be born again to enter Heaven. John 3:4 tells us: “‘How can someone be born when they are old?’ Nicodemus asked. ‘Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!'”
Have you accepted JESUS as your LORD AND SAVIOUR? Truly, you must be born again to enter the gates of Heaven. There are those in our world who will tell you (wrongly) there are many ways to enter the Kingdom of GOD. They proclaim good works or being a good person will be your ticket to Heaven. JESUS tells us the truth. There is only one way to spend eternity with our TRIUNE GOD. The only way to Heaven is to accept JESUS as your LORD AND SAVIOUR.
Don’t be confused as Nicodemus was. You can see clearly with perfect vision. Be born again and embrace the comfort of having your sins forgiven…forever…and spending eternity with GOD.
Today’s prayer: “JESUS, MY LORD, I want to see all YOUR blessings clearly. I know I must be born again to enter the gates of Heaven. Help me to tell others of YOUR perfect love and the only way to Heaven. Amen.”
