Living Water for Your Soul
Jesus replied, "I assure you, unless you are born again, you can never see the Kingdom of God."
What did Nicodemus know about the kingdom? From the Bible he knew it would be ruled by God, it would be restored on earth, and it would incorporate God's people. Jesus revealed to this devout Pharisee that the kingdom would come to the whole world, not just the Jews, and that Nicodemus wouldn't be a part of it unless he was personally born again. This was a revolutionary concept; the kingdom is personal, not national or ethnic, and its entrance requirements are repentance and spiritual rebirth.
Are you born again into God's family?
