Transcript of Life from the Outside
light & LIGHT
"Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council."
Seeing Truth &
"He came to Jesus at night and said, 'Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.' In reply Jesus declared, 'I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.' 'How can a man be born when he is old?' Nicodemus asked. 'Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!' Jesus answered, 'I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.'"
The Glory of God in Jesus Speaking Truth
"The safest road to hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts."
life & LIFE
"You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.' 'How can this be?' Nicodemus asked. 'You are Israel's teacher,' said Jesus, 'and do you not understand these things? I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven--the Son of Man."
Life from the Outside
"…these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name."
"He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him. Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God--children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God."
"Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in Him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved praise from men more than praise from God."
"...whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels."
"Then He said to me, 'It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. But for the
…their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'"
"'For the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.' As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. And two blind men sitting by the road, hearing that Jesus was passing by, cried out, 'Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!' The crowd sternly told them to be quiet, but they cried out all the more, 'Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!' And Jesus stopped and called them, and said, 'What do you want Me to do for you?' They said to Him, "Lord, we want our eyes to be opened.' Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him."
“It is hard to find a major tradition or a minor movement that does not give Him a special place of honor and find a significant way to enfold Him into their system of beliefs. The Baha’i, the Sikhs, the Mormons, the New Age Movement, the Unitarians, Religious Science, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Jains, the Deists, and many more find a way to put their ‘hand in the hand of the man from Galilee.’”
"What happens in the new birth is not getting new religion but getting new life. What happens in the new birth is not merely affirming the supernatural in Jesus but experiencing the supernatural in yourself. What happens in the new birth is not the improvement of your old human nature but the creation of a new human nature—a nature that is really
, and is forgiven and cleansed; and a nature that is really
, and is being formed by the indwelling Spirit of God."
"...children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God."
"Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all."
"If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of Him."
1 John 2:29
"No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in Him; He cannot go on sinning, because He has been born of God."
1 John 3:9
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
1 John 4:7
"...everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith."
1 John 5:4
"We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him."
1 John 5:18
"I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."
