Nick at Night

Thursday June 12th, John: 1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him." Nick at night, it’s more than just a TV show, it is a sign of the chaos, the darkness, the fear the world God gave us lives in as we have tried to recreate this world in our image. Nicodemus was a member of the ruling council, a teacher, a man of God, drawn out in the dark of night by a nagging wonder of hope in the midst of fear, hiding from the others in the ruling council to seek something new, to perhaps grasp the wonder. He was drawn by the miracles, but what he found was salvation, the real miracle of God. He was drawn out of the chaos and into the light, to live as a beacon of light in a world that to this day likes the fear of darkness to the glory and wonder of light. We too are drawn out of our chaos and into the light of Christ, out of the darkness of fear and into the light of faith. As we move with Nick from the night to the light where we find the love of Christ has surrounded us all along, it is just that in the darkness we couldn’t see it.
