Dear Friend in the Lord,
Cross of Christ: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reveals to Nicodemus that God’s Love and Mercy to save humankind from damnation, costs the “Messiah” His Death on the Cross. Ponder on, “How have we been carrying our crosses, in the living and witnessing of our faith? Do we unite them with Jesus who suffered for us?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to Nicodemus: ‘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.
‘Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life.
‘For God sent his Son into the world not to condemn the world, but so that through him the world might be saved.’
