Reflection Or Resolution

Welcome to the Discipleship Minute. I’m Maurice Smith. Ever wonder what happened to Nicodemus after his encounter with Jesus in John Chapter 3? In twenty-one short verses it’s over, and we’re left wondering. Did Nicodemus “believe” in Jesus? Was he “born again”? Did he ever become a disciple of Jesus? Nicodemus disappears from the biblical record, leaving us to wonder and reflect. And that’s the point. You and I want resolution. Jesus wants reflection. In the Kingdom of God, discipleship means asking questions of ourselves and of Jesus, and allowing His truth to reshape our spiritual lives around the answers we discover. We must wrestle, reflect and believe. Discover more in our book, And They Dreamt Of A Kingdom: Biblical Studies In Discipleship And The Kingdom of God. You’ll find it on our website at risingrivermedia.org; that’s risingrivermedia.org.
