DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Holy Spirit’s Presence – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to Nicodemus that the Holy Spirit transforms us into a child of God at Baptism.  This Spirit is Present as He Wills, and not controlled by us.  Ponder on, “Let us affirm that when we are drawn closer to God, it is really the Holy Spirit’s action in our lives.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 3:7b-8, 11-15

Jesus said to Nicodemus: ‘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. This is how it is with all who is born of the Spirit.

‘I tell you most solemnly, we speak only about what we know and witness only to what we have seen and yet you people reject our evidence. If you do not believe me when I speak about things of this world, how are you going to believe me when I speak  about heavenly things? No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of Man who is in heaven; and the Son of Man must be lifted up as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.’
