“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8
Nicodemus came to Jesus at night. He had obeyed the law. He had studied God’s word. He was a religious man. Yet, he knew that there was something missing when he met Jesus. This Rabbi spoke and acted differently. He did things that the average man could not explain.
You see, the motive for everything that Jesus did was love. Love for His Father and love for us. Jesus came to reveal the heart of the Father to the world. God’s love was shared with the world through His Son. And, all who enter a relationship with God through Jesus Christ will fully experience this great love. This is the life that God has designed for you: A life born of the Spirit of God; a life of love.
All who are born of the Spirit, are born in love, and are free to move as the Spirit leads them. Are you experiencing the freedom that this life of love affords? Just as you cannot see the wind, you cannot see the Spirit, but you can feel His effects. Just as you cannot see the Spirit, you cannot see love, but you can feel it’s effects; you know when it is present and lives are changed as a result.
Anyone who is born of the Spirit is set free, and is led by the Spirit to reveal the love of the Father to a world that is desperate need. Let the love of Jesus flow out of you today.
