Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    

        Nicodemus had heard of the miracles Jesus had performed and was curious. But he is not a believer as yet, indicated by the fact that he comes to meet Jesus at night, privately. Jesus engages with Nicodemus and they discuss faith and new birth. Significantly, this passage ends with a lesson about living in the light. In approaching Jesus, who is the “light of the world” (John 8:12), Nicodemus “comes to the light” (John 3:21) and is not only enlightened, but also is led gently to true faith. 

     Nicodemo había oído acerca de los milagros que Jesús había hecho y tenía curiosidad. Pero aún no era creyente; algo que se nos indica por el hecho de que fue a encontrarse con Jesús durante la noche y en privado. Jesús entabla conversación con Nicodemo y dialogan acerca de la fe y de nacer de nuevo. Significativamente, este pasaje termina con una lección acerca de vivir en la luz. Al venir hasta Jesús, que es “la luz del mundo” (Juan 8:12), Nicodemo “se acerca a la luz” (Juan 3:21) y no sólo recibe la luz, sino que también es conducido suavemente a la fe verdadera.

 

Quote for the Week... 

“When we encounter others, do we bring them the warmth of charity or do we stay closed up and warm only ourselves before our fireplace?”
