Understand the basics
John 3:11-12 Listen carefully. I’m speaking sober truth to you. I speak only of what I know by experience; I give witness only to what I have seen with my own eyes. There is nothing secondhand here, no hearsay. Yet instead of facing the evidence and accepting it, you procrastinate with questions. If I tell you things that are plain as the hand before your face and you don’t believe me, what use is there in telling you of things you can’t see, the things of God?
Jesus is talking about rebirth. He is pointing out in order to understand the deeper things of God we must first understand and accept the basics of faith.
Jesus is the only way to God and to live successful lives of recovery we must have complete faith in His divinity and Lordship.
Half measures avail us nothing, we stand at the turning point and chose – follow or fail.
