The Man That Came to Jesus After Dark
Think of this: “He came to the Light of the world, after dark, for cover.” The first words from the Son of God were striking, “Ye must be Born Again.” This was not an attack or a rebuke but an invitation to join the family. He spoke these words not as a restriction but as an opportunity. Nicodemus is an excellent example of a missed opportunity. Every time he is mentioned in Scripture it is stated that, “he came to Jesus at night.” There is no record that he ever became a disciple even though he donated 100 pounds of myrrh and aloes for the burial process. That was a rich sum. Remember that money cannot bury this eternal life.
