"Like Nicodemus, it is all too easy for us to misunderstand the meaning of the phrase “born again.” Many may equate it with the word “Christian” without considering its meaning: we take for granted what it means and move on. When we really think about it though, it is far from a platitude, it is a deeply meaningful phrase, representing the transforming work of
Christ in our lives. It is a deep spiritual truth that is best represented by a physical reality, in this case, birth. The gospel of John has a much more overtly spiritual focus than the other gospels. John seems to be aiming to get us to spiritually engage with God on a different level, he challenges us here with Nicodemus’ conversation with Christ. Though Nicodemus was a
teacher of Israel, a Pharisee, he needed the transforming work of Christ. As Nicodemus took time away from the pressures and business of his life and approached Jesus by night, let us also take time away from our everyday cares to consider the teachings of our Saviour.
