Second Week of Easter

A Pharisee named Nicodemus went to talk to the Lord one night and questioned Him about the meaning of rebirth as a requisite for seeing God’s kingdom. Nicodemus would later recommend that the Sanhedrin do more fact-gathering before condemning Jesus. After the miraculous multiplication of five loaves and two fish to feed a crowd of thousands, Jesus stayed behind for a while. Then He walked on water and brought the Disciples’ wind-rocked boat immediately to shore from miles out before His friends even brought him on board. God does not ration the Holy Spirit that remains with us, helping people in various ways—as Jesus did—to become believers and vessels of His love and mercy. When we feel less than fully on board with what Jesus taught, do we prefer to drift along or let the Spirit of His Words anchor our faith?
