Nicodemus (John 3:1-21)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: You must be born again to enter the kingdom of heaven.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Apart from Christ, man stands condemned.
2. Wickedness hates the light.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
The third chapter of John introduces the idea of the new birth: being born again. Like our first birth, this new birth is not something we can do for ourselves; it is something that God does. When the Holy Spirit makes us alive or born again, we are given a new heart, and our eyes are opened to believe the truth of the gospel, that Jesus Christ was “lifted up” (John 3:14) on the cross so that all who look upon him for their salvation will be saved.

Continuing on in the New Testament, we are on week 9 which starts on page 63 in the Old Story New devotional.
Pray about it! Praise Jesus that in He is our light and in Him there is no darkness at all.
