Out of Control

Summary

That which is born of flesh cannot inherit the kingdom of God, only that which is born of the Spirit, born from above and born anew. With Nicodemus we marvel at Jesus’ words. It is hard for us to admit that we cannot save ourselves but must be redeemed from sin and death. Even more difficult is to see the power of the Spirit connecting us to Christ’s death and resurrection—giving us this new birth. “How can this be?” Nicodemus marvels at Jesus’ words and promise, and in the same way we are in awe of God’s gracious favor: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
