The Baptism of the Lord Sunday is one of the recurring Sundays in the church year. I don’t mind recurring Sundays. I feel there is real value in looking again at something familiar . . . but actually looking at it. Regardless of all that I was wondering what I was going to say about this special Sunday this year.
I am grateful
I am grateful to the Holy Spirit for directing me to a post by a friend who discussed Jesus’ baptism from a perspective I hadn’t considered before. My looking at this event again through his eyes helped me see something I hadn’t before, Jesus’ baptism was not for him and not only for us but also for the water.
Intrigued? I was. Give the sermon a listen and let me know what you think.
