DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Salvation: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures Nicodemus that those who believe that He is the Messiah will gain Eternal Salvation. Let us pray for the wisdom to remain faithful to God in our daily living, especially during the trials and tribulations that tempt us to distant ourselves from God’s Will, Love and Ways.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to Nicodemus: ‘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.
‘No one who believes in him will be condemned; but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already, because he has refused to believe in the Name of God’s only Son. On these grounds is sentence pronounced: that though the light has come into the world men have shown they prefer darkness to the light because their deeds were evil.’
