Daily Word Of God

John 3:31-36

John the Baptist said to his disciples: ‘He who comes from above is above all others; he who is of the earth is earthly himself and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven bears witness to the things he has seen and heard, but his testimony is not accepted by anybody; though anyone who does accept his testimony is attesting that God is true, since he whom God has sent speaks God’s own words, for God gives him the Spirit without reserve.

‘The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything to his hands. Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life: God’s retribution hangs over him.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus tells His disciples that they can believe in His words because God the Father has poured His Spirit on Him in full measure.


  • The Holy Spirit reveals God’s Truth to us and we are each given the gift of freedom to choose everlasting life or everlasting death.


  • Jesus issues the same challenge to us today. Do your choices lead you towards God or away from God?
