A New Birth is Necessary
John 3:3 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
A man named Nicodemus who was a Pharisee inquired of Jesus and how a man might come to know Him. This new birth mentioned seemed to be a spiritual puzzle to Nicodemus, as he was quite baffled.
A new birth? How could a man experience birth into this world, be an infant again?
You see, he was focusing on the physical birth. Not giving any thought to a new spiritual birth which is a supernatural birth made possible by God through His Son Jesus Christ. It is not a new physical birth on this earth. Once the truth about a new birth was set in his mind he understood its spiritual nature, eternal weight, and value.
This incredible truth from God trickled its way into the quickened alive heart of Nicodemus, wrapping him in a soothing eternal blanket filled with the presence nature of God for comforting his heart and mind.
