Today we are going to look at John 3:3.
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Here we have Jesus talking to Nicodemus (a Jewish religious leader). This conversation is a great example of 1st Cor. 1:18-that the message of the cross is foolishness to those who do not know the Lord, but it is power to those of us who are saved. Being able to "see" the kingdom of God is about understanding the message of the Gospel.
Once a person puts their faith in Christ, the Word of God opens up to them, and all of a sudden, they can understand the mysteries that once laid dormant. Of course, the Lord only opens up a portion of what we will understand once we are with Him for eternity.
We should pray for wisdom and ask the Lord to open our eyes to a better understanding of His word and will for our life.
