Lessons From The Gospel Of John: What Must I Do To Be Saved?

He came to Jesus one night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that God has sent you as a teacher. No one can perform the miracles you perform unless God is with him.” – John 3:2

The question is always the same, and the answer is always the same. But wait! Nicodemus didn’t ask a question. Maybe not out loud, but Jesus knows our inner thoughts. The Master knew why Nicodemus wanted to see Him. And Jesus was waiting for Nicodemus.

Nicodemus acknowledged that Jesus was a teacher and a miracle worker. It was probably these miracles which drew Nicodemus’ attention from his busy schedule, but it was the Holy Spirit who prompted Nicodemus to seek out a personal interview with Jesus.

Jesus was at least as busy as Nicodemus, yet He made time to speak personally with this one man. It would have been more efficient for Jesus to only talk to crowds. More people would have been reached this way, but Jesus knew that what He was saying to people needed to be said one on one. So it is today, too. You can go to church with 30 or 40 others, or attend a rally with tens of thousands, but Jesus will still meet you personally, one on one.  Like Nicodemus, you must go to Him, but I promise you He will be there when you ask your question.

Nicodemus’ question? Your question? “What must I do to be saved?” And there is only one answer.
