Message of the Week

You Are My Beloved Son,
With You I Am Well Pleased

The Baptism of the Lord

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?



You Are My Beloved Son; With You I Am Well Please

The Baptism of the Lord

The favor of God rested upon Jesus.

His baptism was an example for all of us.

Make a tangible stand on what you are about to do.

The spirit will come and remain with you forever.

Are you prepared to begin anew?




This is My Beloved Son,
With Who I Am Well Pleased

The Baptism of the Lord

It is He who comes out of the waters of the Jordan to begin a new cycle of life for all of us.

He comes into your life out of your baptism.

It is the acceptance of Him and listening to Him that makes this new life a reality.

Have you thought about what this means to you?
