God offers new life through Christ alone.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
John 3:5 - Jesus replied, "I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.
Read - John 3:1-21
Possibly the most famous verse in scripture (John 3:16) is given to one solitary man who came to Jesus in secrecy. Coupled with that is one of my favorite truths about God’s grace and love. Verses 17-18 tell us that God’s plan is to save and not judge us and that if we will follow Jesus then we escape the ‘judged status’ we are already in. Choose Jesus. Choose Light. Choose Life.
Lord, I choose Your light over the dark things of the world.
https://www.gotquestions.org/bronze-serpent.html - John 3:14 points back to Numbers.
We use the word Mended but John 3 uses a few others. Born Again. Born of water and the Spirit. Spiritual Life. All these things happen when we believe in Jesus. Not simply having a knowledge of Jesus but Knowing Jesus is God the Son who gave His life so that we might have life. When we come to know this we repent of our sin and begin a new relationship with God based upon the love we read in John 3:16. He loves us and we love Him. Knowing and Loving God defines our life of belief in Him…it motivates us to obediently serve God with our lives. Being mended by Jesus is how we Know, Love and Serve God.
