I have heard sermons on this text where the preacher/pastor downright slams Nicodemus for "coming at night". As if it was somehow a less meaningful thing to do at night. Maybe he had to fulfill family obligations? Maybe he did not want to tip off the other authorities as to the whereabouts of Jesus... seeing as how they want to kill Him. Maybe we will never know what the circumstances were that lead him to the feet of Jesus that night, but we do know this: HE CAME TO THE FEET OF JESUS.
Jesus wastes no time getting to the point. Nick comes to Him and the flattery begins. Jesus isn't hearing any of it.
NICK: "Teacher, you are amazing and we know that you come from God because..."
JESUS: "You can't enter Heaven without being born again."
At any rate, let's make this apply to today. Have you come to Jesus' feet today to learn from Him? I've said it before... hint, hint, you'll hear it again I bet.... the lost need a Savior and the saved need a Lord. Fortunately, Jesus supplies both needs.
Yes... even if you come at night.
