After dark one evening, Nicodemus came to Jesus asking, Rabbi, we know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you…Jesus replied, No one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can only reproduce humans but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life…Jesus said, “Just as you can’t tell where the wind comes from and can hear it…you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit” 

John 3:2-8

What attracts you to Jesus? Do you think The Lord knows we are imperfect? Does He know we are made incomplete? Gerald May, MD in his book on Human Understandings states, although God calls us toward more perfect life, we cannot personally achieve the state of perfection. We can and should do our very best to move in that direction, struggling with every resource we have, but we must also accept the reality of our incompleteness. We need to recognize that our incompleteness and imperfection does not makes us unacceptable in God’s eyes…IT IS WHAT DRAWS US TOWARD GOD AND TO ONE ANOTHER.

Nicodemus has a personality flaw. He was the “Undercover Believer”. Are U too? God specializes in finding the “Undercover Believer”. In the above scripture, Nicodemus heart had been following Jesus from a distance. His heart was touched as he witnessed the miracles that Jesus was performing for all people, regardless of race or status or money. Yet, the scripture reads that Nicodemus, the Pharisee, made the appointment to speak with Jesus at night. Daytime meetings with Pharisees were considered antagonistic. Pharisees were religious rulers and were jealous of Jesus because he undermined their authority and challenged and called their religious rules hypocritical. But, Nicodemus was different. His heart was searching. He believed but was “Undercover”. He was afraid what his “friends and peers” would say if they knew. Later, when he understood Jesus to be the Messiah, he spoke up boldly in Jesus’ defense (John 7:50).

When you have an encounter with the Lord, you want to move from being an admirer; move from a “bench warmer” to being committed, boldly saying Let’s pray, in the name of Jesus; calling on him all during the day; fill not the mind with self-recriminations but realize our incompleteness is a highway we can welcome the flow of God’s grace. Thank God, He looks for continual growth from us all. Keep improving your Bodily Temple and your Inner Spirit. Don’t be the “Undercover Believer “all your life.

Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to lifeJohn 8:12            Be Bless Dr. Dowe
