Thirteenth Day of Advent 2013
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” (John 3:3-4 NIV)
Two thousand years have passed since Jesus and Nicodemus had this conversation, yet skeptics still ask, “How can someone be born again?” To the world, the concept sounds ridiculous. They look at spiritual matters with human eyes and miss the meaning entirely.
When we discover the truth about Jesus and ask Him into our hearts, He deposits His spirit within us. We see the world from His viewpoint. We think differently about our activities. We crave new “food”…spiritual food found in the Bible, in church, and in godly people. The pleasures of this world grow vaguely dim as we focus on God’s kingdom.
Enjoy the sounds of Christmas as you prepare for Jesus’ second coming.
See you in a twinkling,
