The gospel of John has always been my favourite gospel, full of the most amazing miracles and encounters.
I do like reading about the miracles performed by Jesus but I think I prefer looking at the encounters Jesus has with the ‘normal’ people; people like you and me.
Nicodemus came to see Jesus at the start of His ministry.
He was a powerful man, yet He came to Jesus in the night, so that he was not seen coming to the Lord.
Even though he did not want to be seen with Jesus, he was welcomed and taught.
Even though he came in secret to Jesus, with no man seeing him, Jesus still entered into relationship with him.
Our relationship with Jesus is a personal thing, how we came to Him is no matter for anyone else.
Nicodemus shows us that relationship with Jesus is, at its deepest level, a personal matter.
Our Christian walk today has nothing to do with what other people or with what they see us doing; it is about our personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.
We are involved in a relationship and not a religion!
There are many religions in this world, but only one way to the Father and that is through relationship with His Son.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that as a gift of grace under the New Covenant I can enjoy a personal relationship with Jesus”.
John 3 v 1 and 2…..There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 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
