Dwelling on the Word of God: Baptism essential for Heaven (Friday 8th November 2013)

Posted on November 8, 2013 at 7:19 AM
‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.’ (John 3:5)
This passage is not part of today’s Mass reading or Gospel but it is one which is of significant importance.  In fact, in terms of salvation, it could not be more important!  Jesus himself tells us that we must be born of water and of the Spirit if we are to enter Heaven. 
What is this ‘born of water and the Spirit’ that Jesus speaks of?  We simply need to turn to the time Jesus and John the Baptist gathered together in the River Jordan.  Jesus is baptised with water and the Spirit descends upon him. 
Baptism is essential for the kingdom of God; even Jesus says so.

I was just searching for this information for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what's the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.
