Here we have a “ruler” of the Jews named Nicademus coming to Jesus in secret at night. The purpose of this late night meeting was for Nicademus to question Jesus, get to know him better. It is in this backdrop that Jesus gives Nicademus a very simple clear explanation of the Gospel.
Simply put God loves us that He sent His son to earth so that everyone who trusts in Him will have eternal life… meaning they will go to heaven instead of Hell. How amazing is that! An almighty all creating being loves us so much that he made it possible for us to be forgiven of our sins and go to heaven; all by simply trusting in His son.
What is the gospel?
How do we become Christians?
What do you think it means to trust in God’s son?
