THE CHURCH OF ST. NICHOLAS OF MYRA - WELCOMES YOU






THURSDAY 15 APRIL


John 3:31-36

‘He who comes from above is above all others; he who is born 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, even if his testimony is not accepted; though all who do accept his testimony are attesting the truthfulness of God, since he whom God has sent speaks God’s own words: God gives him the Spirit without reserve. The Father loves the Son and has entrusted everything to him. Anyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, but anyone who refuses to believe in the Son will never see life: the anger of God stays on him.’


Thought for the Day

We learn something really important in John's Gospel. Jesus reveals God in a way that no else has or could do. John talks about belief a great deal. He is not talking about believing something about Jesus or believing what he says. What he means by belief is that a person makes a personal response to Jesus. This is quite different. It means entering, in complete trust, into a relationship with Jesus. The inspiration and energy to do this comes from the Spirit, whom we meet through God's Word, the Christian Community we live in and anyone or any place there is true human decency.
