There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  John 3:1

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  John 3:2

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.  John 3:3

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?  John 3:4

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  John 3:5

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  John 3:6

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.  John 3:7

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.  John 3:8

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?  John 3:9

Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?  John 3:10

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.  John 3:11

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?  John 3:12

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.  John 3:13

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:  John 3:14

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:15

Think on this passage brothers and sisters.  I  will have a post on it later this week. There is so much going on in this short passage, it’s a treasure trove of insight into grace.   So ponder  it in your hearts, praying for guidance.
