Submit your courage and will to God.
Nicodemus was a Pharisee and a leading Jew. He therefore should not be showing any allegiance to Jesus who was proclaiming to be the long-awaited Messiah. Despite this, Nicodemus ‘came to Jesus’. Even though he did so ‘at night’ in the security of the darkness, it took courage! He then proceeded to make his fiat – his statement of faith – to Jesus by declaring his knowledge that Jesus comes from God.
Jesus immediately pointed to the work of the Spirit in bringing Nicodemus to this knowledge. What we do know, is that the Spirit continued working in Nicodemus until he, along with Joseph of Arimathaea, was able in broad daylight to take the dead body of Jesus and prepare it for burial in the tomb. If we submit our will and courage to God, the Holy Spirit would bring us too from our night into His wonderful light this Easter and beyond!
