” I am telling you the truth, ” Replied Jesus. ” No one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. ” John 3:5
There was a Jewish leader named Nicodemus, who belonged to the party of the Pharisees. Being a Pharisee, he went to see Jesus secretly at night. One night he went to see Jesus and said to him, ” Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher sent by God. No one could perform the miracles you are doing unless God were with him. ”
Jesus answered, ” I am telling you the truth : no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. ” Jesus continued to say, ” No one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. No doubt a person is born of human parents, but he is born spiritually of the Spirit.
To be born again is a rebirth in the Spirit. The Spirit comes from we know not where and goes we know not where. It comes and goes as the wind blows wherever it wishes; hearing the sound it makes, but not knowing where it comes from or where it is going.
A person who is born in the Spirit, lives with the Spirit. The Spirit in him, guides and leads him to live with Jesus, the Lord who changes him to live a life as in the very beginning of creation in Paradise.
This is a mystery and a part that no one can touch – mysterious and unknown which we might call ” Spirit ” comes from we know not where and goes to we know not where. This is when get in touch, we are really reborn.
Only Jesus could build a bridge to heaven.
