There is more than one Nicodemus who said no, no, no, before finally succumbing to grace.

There IS one I am praying for; as sure as the water recedes from the seashore...

I find myself not utilizing prayer often enough as I foolishly think that I might be bothering God and Jesus and the helper even though I do CONSTANTLY ask for the helper to be with me daily in my thoughts , actions and my work (so I do it to the best of my ability.) But my faith is childlike I do not question or get upset as this beautiful life goes by , I know God has a reason for every happenstance no matter how small or minute we might think it is . God knows how many hairs are on our head his brilliance is beyond our comprehension . Praise and Glory to God for his never ending love for us .

From the OP: “ He could not let go of his legalistic religious system and realize that salvation was a sovereign, gracious work of God’s Spirit.”

The text in John 3 indicates Nicodemus had not experienced the new birth. Whose fault was it Nicodemus had not been born again? God’s? The Holy Spirit’s? Nicodemus’?
