Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 14, 2015

wisdom 041415

Jesus said to Nicodemus: “’You must be born from above.’ The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can this happen?”

Jesus answered and said to Him, “You are the teacher of Israel and you do not understand this?  Amen, amen, I say to you, we speak of what we know and we testify to what we have seen, but you people do not accept our testimony If I tell you about earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?  No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.  And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life.”

-From the Gospel o f John 3: 7 -15

Reflections:

  • Do we believe in the testimonies of Christ and His disciples?
  • Do we believe that there is heaven?
  • Do we believe that Jesus is the way to getting there?

FLESH IS FLESH

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, April 13, 2015

wisdom 041300

There was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.

He came to Jesus at night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God, for no one can do these signs that you are doing unless God is with him.”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man once grown old be born again?  Surely he cannot reenter his mother’s womb and be born again, can he?”

Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless one is born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.  What is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of spirit is spirit.  Do not be amazed that I told you, ‘You must be born from above.’  The wind blows where it ills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.

-From the Gospel of John 3: 1-8

Reflections:

  • Do we wish to be renewed?
  • Do we dream of entering God’s Kingdom?
  • Do we call upon the Holy Spirit in our daily lives?

Pope Saint Martin I, pray for us.

Stay renewed,
