Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

– John 3:3

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We know that Christians will experience knowing sin, confessing sins and redeeming sin while they follow God. The Lord Jesus tells us that except a man be born again, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Though we have been redeemed by Jesus and attained salvation, and enjoy the abundant grace He bestowed, however, we still lead the lifestyle of sinning during the day and confessing at night. The Bible said, “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Heb 12:14). The Lord is holy and righteous, and He doesn’t allow those who are impure to enter into the kingdom. Then how can we be born to become a new person and be cleansed? how can we be born again? I have read a passage on a gospel website: “Righteous judgment is in order to purify man, heartless refinement is in order to cleanse man, harsh words or chastening are all in order to purify, and for the sake of salvation. And thus, today’s method of salvation is unlike in the past. Today, righteous judgment saves you, and is a good tool for classifying you each according to kind, and ruthless chastisement brings you supreme salvation—and what have you to say in the face of this chastisement and judgment? Have you not enjoyed salvation from start to finish?” Pondering these words, I come to understand that we must accept God’s judgment and experience His chastisement and refinement if we want to be a new person.

How should we experience God’s judgment? What benefit can we gain from hardship and refinement? From this inspiring story below, I can draw some inspiration. Little Bamboo Shoots’ Growth—Sufferings Are God’s Love
