In John chapter 3 verses 1 to 17, we read the story of Nicodemus and how he came to Jesus Christ. He was a Pharisee, which means that he was a very religious man. He knew about Jesus, but he didn’t know who He was. In this passage, Jesus tells Nicodemus that He came to save sinners. This is an important truth that we need to remember today. JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SAVE SINNERS!
We often forget this truth when we are living our lives. We think that we need to be perfect in order to come to Jesus. But the reality is that we don’t need to be perfect. We just need to admit that we are sinners and that we need His forgiveness. JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SAVE SINNERS! He died on the cross for our sins so that we could be forgiven.
If you are a sinner, I encourage you to come to Jesus Christ today. He is waiting with open arms to forgive you and to give you eternal life. JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SAVE SINNERS!
Don’t wait any longer. Come to Him today!

Jesus met Nicodemus
Nicodemus was a religious leader who came to Jesus at night to talk with him. He was intrigued by Jesus and his teachings, and wanted to learn more about him. Jesus visited Nicodemus to share his message of love and forgiveness with him. Nicodemus was deeply moved by what Jesus had to say, and their conversation changed his life forever. Jesus’ visit to Nicodemus is an important story because it shows us that anyone can come to Jesus, no matter who they are or what they believe. No one is too far from God’s love. Jesus is willing to meet us where we are at, and he wants to have a relationship with us. All we have to do is reach out to him.
What must I do to be saved?
Jesus visited Nicodemus one night to talk with him about the kingdom of God. Nicodemus was a Pharisee, and he was very interested in what Jesus had to say. Jesus told him that people must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. Nicodemus did not understand what this meant, but Jesus explained it to him.
Now, in order to be born again, Nicodemus had to repent of his sins and receive forgiveness from God. He also had to believe in Jesus as his Savior. Once he did this, he would be born again and would be able to enter the kingdom of God.
Jesus also told Nicodemus that He had come into the world to save people from their sins. He told him that anyone who believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life.
Nicodemus believed what Jesus said and he was born again. He became a follower of Jesus and he is now in the kingdom of God.
If you want to be born again, all you have to do is repent of your sins, receive forgiveness from God, and believe in Jesus as your Savior. Once you do this, you will be born again and you will be able to enter the kingdom of God.
Points To Note
1. Nicodemus was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin, which made him an important figure in Jesus’ day.
2. Pharisees were considered to be some of the most religious people of their time, and Nicodemus would have been familiar with Jewish law and customs.
3. It’s unclear why Nicodemus came to speak with Jesus privately, but he may have been curious about Jesus or His teachings.
4. Nicodemus is mentioned only once in the Bible, so not a lot is known about him.
