Nicodemus answers and responds to Jesus just like any of us would, ‘how can someone be born again when they are old, and already been birthed? This is not physically possible!’.
However, Nicodemus has missed the point. What Jesus is saying here is that it is one thing to be born of flesh in the physical, but another to be born with the Spirit of God. When we are born again, we see things the way Jesus sees them. Our eyes are open to see his kingdom, our ears are listening to hear his voice, and our hearts becomes a heart after his. This is why the Holy Spirit is crucial in our lives as Christians, He opens our lives for God to move in us and through us. The Holy Spirit allows us to be born again, and receive God’s spirit afresh.
Lord, teach me to be more like you every day. Help me to see things the way you see them. Help me to have a heart after yours and your people. Fill me each day with your spirit and let me never miss what you’re saying to me.
