Re:Verse reading–John 3:1-21 (day seven)
We often talk about Jesus’ miraculous birth this time of year. Born of a virgin, celebrated by angels, and marked by the stars, Jesus’ birth was unlike any other. The story is told and celebrated year after year. Remarkably, there is another miraculous birth we often overlook.
John 3:4 notes the overlooked miraculous birth like this: Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?”
Your rebirth is a miraculous gift of God. Sometimes we downplay the life we have in Christ, but to be born of the Spirit is to be born of heaven. Just as many still have trouble believing Christ was born in a manger, so too Nicodemus could not believe that you have been reborn. It just isn’t possible.
