1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
John MacArthur had an interesting sermon on this passage.
Often people use either ignorance or difficulty understanding as the reason they do not believe in Jesus as the Son of God. MacArthur says it's not either.
The reason people do not understand, or are ignorant is because they do not believe. And they do not believe because they do not want to believe. And they do not want to believe because they love their sin. They love the darkness and do not want to be exposed by the Light.
And yet Jesus offers the invitation anyway.
