How Can This Be?

Do you ever find yourself questioning the Lord? If so, you are not alone. In John 3 we read the story of Nicodemus who asks Jesus a question. No matter what Jesus responds, Nicodemus keeps questioning how it can be so.

I found the story rather interesting because, I think we often look at things from our own viewpoint and can't make sense of what the Lord is trying to tell us. No matter how much education we have, (And Nicodemus was apparently a learned man), we are still judging things from a limited view. If something doesn't seem logical, it probably isn't--to us! If we were able to see things the way the Lord sees, it would make complete sense. Keeping this in mind is what can allow us to go forward with faith.

That's so true! I think most of us have wondered how something is going to be possible, but He probably just chuckles at us and says, "You'll see. It'll all work out just fine."
