Nicodemus was a good, religious man, but when he came to Jesus at night, his questions showed how little he really understood about the kingdom of God. In this message from John 3, Alistair Begg reminds us that because the real darkness in every life is the darkness of sin, everyone must be radically transformed in order to enter the kingdom. An interest in religious things, even if sincere, is not enough: we must be transformed through an encounter with the living Christ.
An Extraordinary Encounter
What was it like to have a face-to-face encounter with Jesus? From the physically broken man of Mark 2, to the devoted religious man of John 3, and to the promiscuous woman of John 4, Jesus personally engaged unlikely individuals with extraordinary results. None of them walked away from their encounter with Christ unchanged. In this series, Alistair Begg reminds us that each of these individuals had something else in common: their greatest need was not for physical healing or stature, but for a Savior. Jesus offered them a spiritual transformation, and He offers the same thing to us today.
