Your Third Eye!

Reference John 3:1-17

Sherlock Holmes often commented to his portly side-kick, Dr. Watson, “Watson, you see, but you don’t observe.”  Are we like Watson?  Jesus spent his ministry telling his friends to look deeper:  to recognize God in the people and events of daily living. In today’s gospel, he admonishes Nicodemus, “ No one can see the Kingdom of God without being born from above.”  Nicodemus responds blindly, in a mere physical way: “Surely, one can’t reenter his mother’s womb, and be born again.” Restraining his laughter, Jesus exclaims: “You must….be born of the Spirit.”

Jesus is also calling us, his disciples, to see God’s spiritual presence in each person and circumstance. His hand caresses our every moment. Our joy, pain, and doubt all provide opportunity for us to evidence faith and love for our beloved Lord, and express thereby our own godliness.
