Our guest editorial comes from my friend and colleague Niels-Erik Andreasen, president of Andrews University. It features students, faculty and administration at Andrews University who embody its motto: Seek Knowledge. Affirm Faith. Change the World. I appreciate this excellent institution of higher learning in our territory and the exceptional staff, faculty and administration who model a balance between theory and practice as they interact with students and, most importantly, daily share the love of Jesus. —Don Livesay, president of the Lake Union Conference
The most remarkable story in the Gospels is found in John chapter three. It tells about two men who met secretly at night for a discussion.
Nicodemus was a well-established rabbi (teacher) in the community, according to the Gospel. He wanted to check out this new phenomenon, Jesus, who enjoyed a public following, perhaps partly due to the remarkable miracle he already had performed in Cana (John 2).
Nicodemus politely opened the conversation with Jesus by addressing him as someone sent by God — but that is probably not what he wanted to discuss, and Jesus did not immediately respond to it. Instead, he told Nicodemus that to enter God's kingdom he must be born again, making the kingdom of God the real topic of conversation. Nicodemus wanted to understand if Jesus was the expected Messiah of that kingdom.
Jesus responded that the kingdom would only come when its prospective citizens were reborn. Nicodemus pretended to be surprised, and observed that a rebirth is both silly and impossible. With this, the conversation turned to the presence of God's life-giving Spirit that blows like the wind, but remains invisible. The Spirit holds the key to the kingdom. Read more.
The message in this section is the intro to President's Perspective, by Don Livesay, Lake Union president, reprinted from the current issue of the Lake Union Herald. It will be updated monthly.
