The Most Important Question To Ask

Just preached the Nicodemus story in John 3:1-15.  I like Nicodemus, but it would have served him well to ask Jesus the question, “Help me understand what you mean?”

Jesus said some pretty crazy things, “You must be born again to enter heaven.”  Huh?  What?  Nicodemus asked the argumentative questions rather than the understanding questions – “How can an old man enter the womb a second time?”  Fair enough Nicodemus, but it’s not helping you understand what the New Birth is all about.

So here’s my tip of the day … of the month … of life – When you don’t understand, or even agree with, something … stop and ask this question first – “Can you help me understand what you mean?”  Trust me your friendships (and walk with God) will be the better for it!

Always Trying to Understand,

Pastor Mark
