This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)
Today I am asking a question: What is missing in your life?
We are continuing our four-part series on how we move from self-doubt to clarity about our life’s purpose. Today, we’re discussing part three, which is all about transformation. Sometimes your journey towards self-discovery and ultimate transformation can start with the feeling that something is missing. Acknowledging those three words—something is missing—can be the first step in your transformation process.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I see that Nicodemus was in a similar place. He was a member of the Jewish ruling council and thus an established figure in the community—yet something was missing. His feelings prompted him to pursue Jesus in the night for answers. When he confronted Jesus, he learned that his strict observance of the Old Testament would not be enough to save him. His salvation would only come through Christ.
I’m sure Jesus’ words must have shaken Nicodemus to his core because this was contrary to everything he had been taught. It’s important to note that transformative work can be difficult but all the more rewarding. The key is to embrace your process, and that’s exactly what Nicodemus did. He went from secretly seeking Jesus out at night to challenging his fellow Pharisees for trying to take Jesus away to openly participating in Jesus’ burial. Like the caterpillar, Nicodemus honored his process, however uncomfortable it became.
