Christus und Nicodemus by Fritz von Uhde (1848–1911)
Jesus performed miracles for people to believe in Him and gain life, but in the end, these people believed only in the miracles and not in Jesus as the son of God (John 2:23-25).
God so loved the world that whoever believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. It is invitational and hopes for a response to complete the circle of love and share in the interconnectedness of the creating, liberating, healing Holy Trinity.
In today’s gospel (John 3.1-17) Jesus challenges Nicodemus that as a teacher of the Jews he did not understand the Old Testament about being born again. Nicodemus patiently listens to Jesus. Nicodemus comes to Jesus near the beginning of his ministry (John 3), defends him in the middle (John 7:45-52), and is with him at the end (19:38-42). Is this not what a disciple would do?
In the lockdown, may God the Holy Trinity keep you strong in faith, protect you from harm, guide you in all truth, give you peace and joy. Amen.
A reminder that the church is closed during the restrictions but a service for Trinity Sunday is available on our YouTube channel. I want to thank all who were involved in recording the service.
