In John 3, we read that Nicodemus came to Jesus during the night and talked with Jesus. Nicodemus was afraid that the religious leaders might blame him for something. Nicodemus took courage to talk with Jesus directly. Jesus gave him a great lesson about being born again. Nicodemus could not understand what it meant "to be born again." Jesus explains that being born again means believing in Jesus because he came from Heaven. To be born again, we need to go through a process which is believing in Jesus and asking him to come into our hearts and life.
