Follow Me- “Starting From Scratch”

Follow Me- “Starting From Scratch”

During my prayer and preparation for this week’s message covering the text of John 3:1-7, a phrase kept popping into my mind: “Starting from scratch.” My Grandma Gen and her home cooking was fondly recalled, as much of what she prepared in the kitchen was from scratch, meaning there were no premade pie crusts, frozen pizzas, or T.V. dinners on her menu! Literally, the phrase means to start something from the beginning or to begin a task, business, or a meal from nothing.

This phrase has significant meaning for us and applies in absolutely every case spiritually. When Jesus says “Truly, truly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (Jn. 3:3), He is telling us that in our spiritual walk of faith, we must “start from scratch.” This is where “Follow Me” begins, and in this week’s message will dig deeper into these verses and discover together the depth and meaning of Jesus’ words for us.
