Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.John 3:3 KJV

Nicodemus knew something was different about this man Jesus. Nicodemus came to Jesus by night, he recognized that this man Jesus came from God. Then Jesus  says something that Nicodemus did not expect, you see, he was a Pharisee, these were the “most religious” folks of the day. They had God figured out.  Then Jesus tells him “Except…” this is to the exclusion of everything else. This one word destroyed everything a Pharisee worked for, it’s not by works it is only by grace that we are brought into the family of God, Except a man be born again is the only way we will see the kingdom of God. We are born into the family of God when we except Christ by faith. Yes, it is that simple, Christ died for our sins. His blood is the only payment for our sin. JESUS is the one who brings us into God’s family, and only Jesus
