Baptism of the Lord

This Weeks Readings: Isaiah 40.1-5,9-11; Psalm 104; Titus 2.11-14; 3.4-7; Luke 3.15-16,21-22.

Jesus walks in solidarity with all human beings. He who was without sin humbles himself and submits himself to a baptism of repentance and conversion. Jesus' Baptism by John in the Jordan bears witness to his obedience to the will of his Father. It initiates Jesus into his public ministry, and confirms his vocation as God's Son. The Trinity of 3 persons converge at this moment in time. The Spirit in the form of a dove appears, solidifying the Father's pronouncement, "This is my Beloved Son!"

Next Week's Readings: Isaiah 62.1-5; Psalm 96; 1 Corinthians 12.4-11; John 2.1-12.

1.       Looking at my daily life, what does surrendering everything to the Lord mean to me? In what ways do I hold back?
