Sermon Preview: Nicodemus

This Sunday and next we meet two people and get to listen in on their conversations with Jesus. A man who thinks he knows and a woman who knows she doesn’t. A man respected for doing and believing all the right things, and woman notorious for her messy life and ridiculous religion. Both need Jesus more than they realize. In both interactions Jesus, with wisdom and grace, goes to the heart of the issues holding them back and then shows them the path to life. We will meet Nicodemous first, respected professor and religious leader. He thinks he knows how to get the life he wants. He teaches others how to do the same. Jesus confronts him with a path so simple and so beautiful that Nicodemous does not have a category for it.

Take a few minutes this weekend and dream. Imagine. What would the perfect life look like for you? If you were the king what would your kingdom be like? What are you doing to get there? What are you doing to make that dream a reality? Jesus wants to show all of us that the life we long for, his kingdom, is more beautiful than we can imagine and more simple to see and enter than we ever dreamed.

Read and pray through John 3:1-21. See the beauty of Jesus and put your life in his hands.

I can’t wait to worship together.
