Genesis 12:1-4a, John 3 1-17

Today we are joined by Roberta Howey. Roberta is a student at Emmanuel College, and is nearly finished her studies. Today she discusses the story of Nicodemus. What does it mean to be born from above? When we hear the term 'born again' it often conjures up images of people excitedly exclaiming the fact that they have been saved, that their past is behind them, and they are now fully followers of Christ. But we also know that once someone is 'saved' it doesn't stop them from being able to falter. So what does it mean to be born again? It means everyday committing, and re-committing, to living in the spirit, and listening to the ways of Jesus. Not something for the faint of heart, and not something to take lightly.
