In the final verse of the much loved hymn ‘It is Well with My Soul’ it says, “and Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight”. This side of eternity we have faith in our Savior even though we don’t see Him directly. As Peter tells us, “Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” (1 Peter 1:8–9, ESV). Our faith looks to our living hope in Jesus, and Nicodemus needed to have faith (being born again) to see and enter the Kingdom of God.
Main lesson: Through faith people can spiritually experience Jesus and live in the light He provides, whilst also seeking to invite others to come and see Jesus also.
