Maybe each and every Christian family in the United States, not the government, should take in one of these children who are crossing the southern border covering all expenses privately. Maybe we should feed them, cure their diseases, house and clothe them. Maybe we should educate them, teach them life skills, self-reliance and occupational entrepreneurship. Maybe we can call it an extended private student exchange program. Maybe, yes at the up-most we should preach Christ, enlighten them with the Gospel of grace for the forgiveness of sins. Maybe in ten years they must return to their own countries, no amnesty, no pathway to citizenship and no taxpayer dollars. Maybe then they can be the feet and hands of Christ for their people, to oppressed and darkened nations. Maybe if we show Christ’s compassion now to the human needs at hand, and uphold the rule of law sending them home healthy, educated, compassionate and spiritually strong in the future. Maybe we can teach these children to fish for themselves. Maybe we can break the cycle of poverty and spiritual darkness within a generation. Maybe we can give them a reason not to leave home. Maybe we should give one of these a glass of water (Mat 10:42). Maybe we should do hard things now. Maybe we could win souls and nations for Christ.

" We call men to repent and believe. And if they repent and believe, truly in that moment they are saved in that moment. But the evidence is more than just the sincerity of a prayer. It is a continuation of the working of God in their life through sanctification. "

" The holy vocation of Jesus took Him to the cross, and His resurrection was God’s receipt for Calvary, the seal that the debt had been paid. Such a triumph over Satan, and over his power of death, earned for Jesus immortal honor and worship. "

- Herbert Lockyer

" This miracle was the immediate work of God and concurred with the translation of Elijah to keep alive in a degenerate age the grand truth of a bodily resurrection, which the translation of Enoch was calculated to produce in the antediluvian world and which the resurrection of Christ, in a glorified body, fully illustrated "

Slack hand: such persons usually endeavour to maintain themselves by deceit and wickedness, instead of doing it by honest labour and diligence.

Benson Commentary

Nicodemus Brought From Darkness into Light

John 3:1-18 (KJV)

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
