John 3:1-2a (New International Version)
1 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus
Election Day. 1 Kings 2 demonstrates that politics can be brutal.
The New Testament reading is also about a person with power. John 3:1 tells us Nicodemus was a member of the Jewish ruling council. Yet he came to Jesus (John 3:2).
Let us pray for all those who exercise power in our community, whether members of the federal parliament, or the NSW government or the Wollongong City Council – or even the Parish Council. Like Nicodemus, may they seek Jesus.
