Jesus Teaches Nicodemus 3 1Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.” 3Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[P] ” 4“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!” 5Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[Q] gives birth to spirit. 7You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[R] must be born again.’ 8The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[S] 9“How can this be?” Nicodemus asked. 10“You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. 12I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.[T] 14Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[U] 15that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”[V] 16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John Testifies Again About Jesus   22After this, Jesus and his disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where he spent some time with them, and baptized. 23Now John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were coming and being baptized. 24(This was before John was put in prison.) 25An argument developed between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing. 26They came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, that man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan—the one you testified about—look, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him.” 27To this John replied, “A person can receive only what is given them from heaven. 28You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him.’ 29The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. 30He must become greater; I must become less.”[W] 31The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. 32He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. 33Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. 34For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God[X] gives the Spirit without limit. 35The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. 36Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

Where do we all start? Dealing with a sin nature. Romans 3:10-12 Notice how Paul says and notice how he speaks of the effects of sin upon mankind's desires (heart), thoughts (mind), and choices (will). The other verses explain why men do not know God: Pride Deceit We love darkness,over light. We are evil.

Agape is the foundation of the Christian faith. Love must be partnered as who we are as Christian. Agape love is the only love in which we don't have to earn nor do we have to return. You have to love yourself to give people Agape love. We have a hard time because we fall short in our own eyes. God deserves our agape love no matter our situation or circumstance. 3 things Agape does for us: 1. It makes us want to give to the world. We strive to be a blessing to others. We try to help others as God helped us. Using Gods word as a guide. Continue to pray for others instead of focusing on our self. John 15:30 2. It makes you become a servant. It makes you find your purpose in God. How and which way are you suppose to serve God. Agape love allows you to become intimate with our purpose. One must take the time to find your purpose from Gods word. 3. Agape makes us sacrifice ourselves for the ones we serve. We all must carry our own cross. We must but our needs and desires on the back burner. We must show our sacrifice in eyes of God. 4. Agape is infectious when done the right way. They need to see your love. We must care for each other. We must stay connected to others and the church so the spirit can run through us all if we are showing Agape love. God will continue to bless us via his word if we choose to follow. We show our love of God by showing our love to the world and following his word. We show our praise to God by sacrifice and in return he bless our lives.
