Gospel text (Jn 3,1-8): "No one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above." Now 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, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.”

Nicodemus said to him, “How can a person 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, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. 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 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.”

Today, a wise elder among the Jews talks with Jesus. Nicodemus admires Jesus and tells Him: - You come from God because you do miracles.

- To believe in God is not enough to see miracles. Jesus tells Nicodemus that we shall reborn, pray and be “small” like children to hear God´s voice.
