Jesus begins His public ministry with an affirmation given to Him for us.
Jesus is the one who will baptize with fire and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the one who will not only save but also ignite in the world a new commitment to God’s direction for us.
We also receive fire and the Holy Spirit in our baptism. We receive the fire of faith and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Our commitment to our faith mission is worked out over time in the circumstances of our lives.
Do you ever think of the meaning of your personal baptism for your life?
Do you ever feel the fire or the spirit of Jesus in your life?
