The Late-Night Conversation

John 3:1-3 (NIV)

Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

Some of the best conversations happen late at night and one-on-one. Why did Nicodemus come to Jesus at night to inquire of Him? I think that Nicodemus was truly seeking after Jesus and it started with a late-night conversation. The leaders of Israel had their suspicions about Jesus and His true identity. Nicodemus wanted to know more. So he goes to Jesus and strikes up a late-night conversation.
What about you? Have you struck up a conversation with God lately? Or have you been ignoring Him? Have you been seeking after Him by reading His Word and through prayerful communication? What is Jesus saying to you today? Don’t ignore His voice. What is He asking of you? Is it to go deeper with your relationship with Him? Is it to know Him better? Is it to love and serve someone in His name? Is it to be born again? Take some time today to inquire of Him? Do it right now. Don’t wait to have a late-night conversation. Instead, seek His will and His way for your life starting right now.
PRAYER: Help me, O God, to hear Your voice today. I seek Your will and Your way for my life today. I want to know You and trust You. I want to serve You and love You more each day. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may know You more. I ask these things in Jesus’ name, amen.
