After being baptized by John, Jesus comes forth to begin His special mission to mankind.
Jesus is confirmed by the Spirit of God as the “designated one.” He is the chosen one to save God’s people.
Jesus made a public presentation of His ministry to portray His humanity and divine mission.
Jesus is real. He is one of us. He comes to us in his humanity. He stands before us and calls to us to come to Him and share in His ministry – to advance the kingdom of God in this world.
Are we, once again, ready to respond?
