John 3:7-15

But the Gospel reading from St. John attempts to describe the intangible mystery at the heart of Christianity. Jesus talks about the Holy Spirit – “The wind blows where it wills – you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.” Nicodemus, naturally, does not understand what Jesus is talking about because Jesus is talking about heavenly things.  Christ cannot be more explicit. Being a Christian is more than following a few laws, of being kind to one another. Our life as a follower of Jesus involves a very deep interior life of faith, a deep interior life of prayer, it involves having Christ like attitudes. What someone might see on the surface needs to flow from something deep down inside us.
