Not Equal

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 3:4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

Nicodemus was hung up in the physical world as most of us are. We relate to what we have seen, heard and experienced for ourselves. A person who has not been born of the spirit of God cannot even begin to comprehend that a spiritual birth is possible, let alone necessary. Man strives to connect to the “higher power,” the something out there beyond them through man’s own intellect and efforts. In ancient times man tried to build a tower to reach into heaven. Astronauts and astronomers search the heavens in search of some higher power. Man wants the power to be something he can understand with his own finite, physical mind. God is beyond thee physical. Yes, He did come to earth in physical form for thee man He created to see a little of Him, but God is spiritual. God created spiritual man and walked with that man but that man chose to be equal with God and by doing so, separated himself from God. Through Jesus, God in Word and Flesh, thee spiritual in man can be reborn. That will not make man equal with God but will enable man to enjoy fellowship with God. Our question is have we some through Jesus to have the spirit reborn in us and are we living in the fellowship the spirit enables us to have?
