Entering the Kingdom of God

“Holy Trinity with Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist and Tobias and the Angel”, Sandro Botticelli, 1444.

John 3:1-17
For Sunday June 3, 2012
Trinity Sunday

These verses do indeed talk about being “born again” but only as a means to an end. What is the end? Entering the kingdom of God.  Where is the kingdom of God? Wherever God’s will is being done.  What is God’s will? Not to condemn the world but to save it.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Point to ponder:
Have you believed in Jesus so that you may not perish? If not, why not? If so, how are you finding life in the kingdom of God?
