Scripture Reading: John 3:5
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Reflections: Nicodemus, a high placed Jewish leader had an interaction with Jesus. The discourse led him to discover and understand the born again concept-a due process which gets one’s spirit to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit in order for the person to become a child of God. Except this process is followed, it is impossible for one to become a member of the kingdom of God. A key life principle that emerges from this story is that there are due (laid down) processes that must be followed in order for access to the threshold of success and fulfillment in life to be granted. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines due process as ‘a course of formal proceedings (such as legal proceedings) carried out regularly and in accordance with established rules and principles’. Follow due process! Reflect on Psalm 15!
Prayer: Oh Lord help me discern and follow through due processes in life that will enhance my livelihood
Confession: I do not treat lightly approved processes that lead to the enhancement of my livelihood. I follow through.
