Daily Word Of God

John 3:1-8

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. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.

‘In all truth I tell you, 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 to you about earthly things, how will you believe me when I speak to you about heavenly things?

     ‘No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Son of man; as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up so that everyone who believes may have eternal life in 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 explains to Nicodemus what it means to be “born of the Spirit.”


  • The result of Jesus’ death in being “lifted up on the cross” and His rising and exultation to heaven is our “new birth in the Spirit”. Jesus has secured eternal life for all who believe in Him.


  • Do you long for the new life in the Spirit that Jesus is offering us? Ask Jesus to fill us with His Holy Spirit that we may defend and witness the Gospel  steadfastly in our daily life.
