This sermon was preached at WPC Belconnen’s Sunday morning service on June 6, 2021. It examines John 3:1-21.
Is there a way to live forever? Is there a way for us to escape the curse of death? In John 3:1-21, we hear the amazing news that we can indeed live forever. The Creator of the universe offers us amazing grace and eternal life if we simply repent of our rebellion against Him and place our trust in His Son, Jesus. This grace is so amazing, so shocking that the leading teacher of Israel could not understand it. This man, Nicodemus, learns that his credentials as a Jew, Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews and a teacher of Israel could not gain him entry into the kingdom of God. He needed help from above – he needed to be born again.
