Believing and Born AgainMarch 14, 2021
Signs that Jesus must be the Son of God
- He Supernaturally Knew People: example of Nathanel
- He did miracles to show He cared for people: example of the Wedding at Cana
John 3:3 Jesus said “unless one is born again, he cannot see teh kingdom of God”.
Nicodemus asked the obvious question; “How can a man be born when he is old?”
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
Exekiel 36 25 “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean.
26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you.
I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.
27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.
John 3: 9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”
Jesus said 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
There is an unspoken “WHY” in the text.
WHY would God do this for us, with all our sin, with all of our messed up lives, with all of our rebellion,
WHY WOULD GOD WANT ME BACK?
JESUS ANSWERS THAT QUESTION FOR US:
16 For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Believe that God created you to be with Him.
Believe that God loves you.
Believe that you are a sinner, in need of a Savior.
Believe that Jesus ALONE is that Savior!
Believe that He died for you!
Believe that in victory Jesus rose from the dead for you, as the triumphant living KING!
Believe that He is coming to take you Home some day.
Believe that everyone will stand before God and have to give an account of themselves, and the only answer that will pass the test – is that Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe.. sin had left a crimson stain, but HE WASHED it white as snow.
