Christ Witnesses to Nicodemus John 3:1-21

Jesus explains to us through His conversation with Nicodemus that in order to enter the kingdom of God you must be born again. You must be born of water and of spirit.

Nicodemus expressed his natural thoughts in terms of flesh and physical existence, a direct contrast to the perspective on life Christ wants us to have.

The combination of water and Spirit represent a birth from above, a spiritual birth.

The teaching here is that man, in his totally depraved sinful condition, cannot be improved.

Mental knowledge will not change you into an acceptable subject fit for the kingdom of God.

The flesh is incurably wicked, and cannot by any process be changed so as to produce a righteous life.

What every person needs, Jesus says, is a new nature, a spiritual nature which will allow the blood of Christ to cleanse us from all unrighteousness and continually fill us with the presence of the true and living God in order to be covered by God’s grace and mercy to enter into His eternal presence.

Receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is the only way to have Eternal life and peace on this earth.



Two Ways to Life

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Matt 7:13-14







Forgiveness of Sin

God’s love is so real, so deep that the human mind is impaired from completely grasping the true meaning of love.

Jesus demonstrated love as He hung on the cross bruised, beaten, with and the weight of every sin upon Him for your sake and mine. He chose to take the

punishment of Eternal separation from God for you and me in the hope that we would choose Him as our Lord and fulfill our purpose which was destined upon creation.
True forgiveness has been given freely from Jesus to us. He paid the highest price for your freedom.

Have you received His forgiveness for your sin personally?

Have you forgiven yourself?

Do you forgive others as you have been forgiven?
