Jesus spoke to Nicodemus and laid some heavy ideas on him. Actually these “new” ideas weren’t heavy at all, but they were light…and freeing. But they were radically different and frightening to people stuck in the self-justification/sanctification, living by the law (for righteousness) game.
The sanctification of the righteous, the religion project, the improving yourself in the eyes of God project are all things that work against what Jesus brought to this world, and to you, via His cross and resurrection.
Give this one 10 minutes of your time. It may be the most productive 10 minutes you’ve spent in a long time.
