October 8, 2017: Born Again
October 8, 2017
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
Today’s Bible Reading: Jeremiah 16-18, Ecclesiastes 6, John 3:1-15, James 4:1-10 John 3:1-15: Note: As we go through John’s Gospel together over the next few weeks, I refer you to fuller comments in my recently published commentary on John’s Gospel, as well as the recently published Bible study guide. In addition, at College Church we are currently working our way through John’s Gospel on Sunday mornings, and that will provide you with another take on the material. Take, then, and read a full analysis of this section of John, and this morning simply reflect on the following bullet points:
- What does it mean to be “born again”?
- Why is that we must be “born again” to see the kingdom of God?
- Why must we look at / believe in Jesus as he is lifted up on the cross in order that we may have eternal life?
- Have you been born again?
