This is the beginning of a new devotional experience in which you are invited to experience a time of meditational reflection on the Word of God. The focus in this new season is on Christ Himself, His nature, purpose and impact as He has sought to reconcile sinners back to the Father.
We begin with John’s account of the eternally existent Christ who in His incarnation has given us the opportunity to become sons of God, heirs of the Kingdom within the family of God.
Paul captures the essence of this truth and recounts it in his own words in his letter to the Colossian Christians. But nowhere is it more clearly presented than in the encounter of Nicodemus, the Jewish leader, with Jesus Himself. To enter the Kingdom of God, you must be born again, “from above”
As you reflect on the Johannine and Pauline accounts what can we discover about Christ Himself? What can we learn about ourselves and the new birth which changes our life forever? Perhaps it is more profound than we normally credit it. It is a mystery, but it is real, isn’t it?
This meditational exercise is for your own personal self-assessment, self-effacement, self-affirmation, self-determination, and Kingdom application. As you meditate on the Word, seek to apply it personally and practically to your daily life and to your vocational pursuits and ministerial witness. Contribute to your Journal and share your reflections and testimony in the personal Blog.
