Lent day 25 – John 3 – are you still blown away by the Gospel?
Where in the Word are you today?
I’m in John 3 and there’s a verse in here you know by heart.
If I were to start “For God so loved the world,” you’d likely be able to finish it – “that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him, would not perish but have eternal life.” But let’s back up and take in the whole story.
We have Nicodemus, a member of the ruling council of the Jewish priests known as Pharisees. He comes to Jesus to find out more about this miracle worker who seems to be sent from God. What he gets is far more than he likely bargained for! Jesus reveals the Way to the Father, through the Son, whom he claims to be. Belief in the Son who is light and life and truth is likened unto being reborn.
The whole conversation was likely mind-blowing for Nicodemus – but what about us?
Have we said John 3:16 so many times we forgotten just how mind-blowing the Gospel really is?
