Our Rebirth

John 3:1-15

A screenwriter recently wrote an article for the LA Review of Books about why she attends church (Mass) every week. In her article, she describes church like this: "The things that I feel proud of can’t help me here, and the things that I feel embarrassed by are beside the point." In John 3, a man named Nicodemus who has everything going for him, including spiritually, approaches Jesus only to hear that nothing that he brings to the table is of any help when it comes to entering the kingdom of God. Instead, something miraculous must be done in and for him.
