Nicodemus wanted to know more about Jesus but because of his position, a member of the Jewish Sanhedrin (council), he was afraid to meet Him while others watched!
So instead, Nicodemus secretly visited Jesus at night time.
Jesus said to him, “For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16-17)
Love “gives”. How many times will I give today?
Almighty Father, all that I am and all that I have, came from You. You pour your daily blessings and graces upon me even when I sin against you. Merciful Father, forgive me my weaknesses, I love You.
Prayer: Be at Peace (St Francis de Sales)
Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are,
will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace,
and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
Hymn: Amazing Grace
Almighty Father, thank you for this new day. Bless me and keep me safe.
Lord Jesus Christ, guide me in my work, silence my fears and accept my achievements as a small gift of thanks to You.
