New Life

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” (John 3:3 NIV)

In the middle of the night, a Pharisee named Nicodemus, came to Jesus.  Nicodemus recognized his sinful state.  He wanted to know how to be part of the kingdom of God.  Instead, he tells Jesus that he believes that Jesus came from God because no one else could perform the miracles that Jesus did if He were not sent from God.

Jesus knows what’s on Nicodemus’ heart.  Jesus tells Nicodemus that to be part of the Kingdom of God you had to be born again.  This totally confused Nicodemus because he was looking at the physical impossibility of being born again.

Except a man be born from above, unless he shall receive a new heart, new desires, purposes, and motives, leading to a new life, “he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

Thinking that we can change ourselves is a big mistake.  We can only change the outside, not the inside.  We need the power of Jesus to change us from the inside out.  We need the power of the rebirth that only Jesus can provide.  Only then can we receive a new heart, new desires, a new purpose in live, and new motives to live a life for Christ.
