Sermon

Nicodemus, a Pharisee, comes to Jesus in the night to ask him important questions about spirituality. As a seeker and an intellectual, he is both persistent and resistant in his inquiry. Does this keep him from accepting Jesus’ teaching or is he won over? Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny notes that although Nicodemus slips away that night, he does reappear later in Jesus’ story and that God can use our resistance and persistence to build both flexibility and strength.
