Sharing my thoughts after reading our assignment each week in Come, Follow Me—For Individuals and Families.
“As you read John 2-4, the Spirit will teach you things about your own conversion. Make note of His promptings. You may find additional spiritual insights from the study ideas in this outline.” [Header, Lesson for Feb 11-17, 2019, “Ye Must Be Born Again”.]
Journaling my impressions:

I love the interactions (with JST improvements) between Mary and Jesus. The video of the wedding in Cana highlights these interactions beautifully.
The same is true of the interactions between Jesus and Nicodemus. I love how Christ points out to him (lovingly, I’m sure) that, as a leader in Israel, Nicodemus should have at hand the ability to speak, to act, to think, to know the things of God. [John 3:10.] Similarly, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we ourselves should take care that we speak/act/think/know and that we teach with power and authority of God. Note in the video how, as Christ walks away from the scene, he turns and waits, inviting Nicodemus to join him.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the woman at the well and story of the woman at the well, as well. The video of it highlights perfectly all the important things!
