Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Born of the Spirit” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Nicodemus, was authentically searching for God’s Truth of Salvation. Jesus revealed to him that a person needs to be born of the Holy Spirit; in the Kingdom of God. Ponder on, “We cannot discover God’s Truth of Salvation, through human thinking; but, only through the divine gift of faith in the Holy Spirit.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
There was one of the Pharisees called Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews, who came to Jesus by night and said, ‘Rabbi, we know that you have come from God as a teacher; for no one could perform the signs that you do unless God were with him.’
Jesus answered: ‘In all truth I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.’ Nicodemus said, ‘How can anyone who is already old be born? Is it possible to go back into the womb again and be born?’
Jesus replied: ‘In all truth I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born through water and the Spirit; what is born of human nature is human; what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be surprised when I say: You must be born from above. The wind blows where it pleases; you can hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.’
