Easter Weekday Wednesday
John 3: 16-21
We all like our sports teams to win, we do not like it when they lose. We play this game of life to win we do not play to lose. We would never wish upon ourselves to be sick or to not feel well, we do everything to win. Our readings this day is all about God is winning!
In our first reading, as the disciples are taken to public jail, God is winning as an angel comes and frees them from jail during the night. The angel tells them to go right back to where there were when they got arrested and begin preaching again. God is winning, because this time when they are arrested the second time the guards are the ones afraid because the disciples are gaining popularity. God is winning!
In our Gospel, God is winning as we continue with this discussion that Nicodemus is having with Jesus. Nicodemus is trying to figure out who he is and at the same time trying to figure out who Jesus is. We hear the famous line, “God so loved the world that he gave his only son that all who would believe would have eternal life.” God loved the world so much he allowed his Son to die on a cross so he would win for us our salvation.
God is winning! God is winning! God is winning!
