Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: John 3:7-15
"So must the Son of Man be lifted up."
We usually feel “lifted up” whenever you are on top, at the top of your game. Jesus talks about a different kind of being on top — in humble, sacrificial, loving service to others. It is a “lifting up” that does not call attention to the self. When we are on top, do we focus only on ourselves or do we take the opportunity to love? Lord, may we always remember that you lift us up so that we may serve others.
