John 3:1-2 (NKJV) 3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
Nicodemus was a Pharisee and he was a ruler of the Jews. He wore many different masks, so to speak. But when Nicodemus came before the Lord Jesus Christ, Nicodemus was just plain old Nick. And plain old Nick had a genuine faith. He believed in the Devine inspiration of the Old Testament. He believed in the coming of the Messiah. He believed in miracles. And he believed in the Resurrection. Many of us are like Nicodemus, we have many different types of relationships. We have business relationships. We have friendships. We have family relationships. And we act and behave differently in each of our relationships. We wear a different mask, so to speak, in each of our relationships. But when we come before our Lord Jesus Christ, we don’t have to wear a mask. We can simply be who we are. We can totally be ourselves with Christ and we can fully trust in Him, because He is God the Son.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
