Rain. It’s a strange thing. It is certainly needed to grow the crops that keep us fed. It’s needed to keep the lakes and rivers supplied with the water that we need to drink. But sometimes there’s more rain than one area needs like the folks in Louisiana. We’ve had our share of floods too, thank goodness we’re not in that bad of shape!

In John 3, the Bible speaks of a religious leader named Nicodemus coming to Jesus by the cover of night to investigate salvation. Through this dialogue, Jesus declares that one must be born again to receive life everlasting. Nicodemus was confused by this statement and asked for clarification and eventually walked away in the moment to ponder what Jesus had taught.
God is a great God and His love is a great love. But so many today believe in a little God and a great humanity. Man tries to take the place of God. While man is glorified, God is being pushed into the background.
But God is still sovereign. He made all things: they are His now, and one day He will reign over all things. David felt small when he considered the handwork of God, and said, “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers. What is man that you take thought of him” (Psalm 8:3-4).
