Daily Reading from the USCCB: John 3:7b-15
Nicodemus doesn’t understand what Jesus is talking about. What does Jesus mean when He speaks about being born again in the Spirit?
Jesus says, “I know what I’m talking about. I come to you from the presence of the Father. In due time I will be lifted up, glorified, a source of salvation for all those who will accept Me. If you are to be saved you have to accept my testimony when I teach you about the things of heaven.”
We’re all a bit like Nicodemus. Sometimes what Jesus says seems beyond our grasp. Yet our salvation depends on our acceptance of what Jesus teaches–of what He promises us–because He alone speaks of heaven with the voice of experience.
