When God Takes Over

Passage: Isaiah 42:1-9 Romans 6:1-11 Matthew 3:13-17

In the waters of the Jordan, Jesus is baptized by John. The triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, converge on this day. “You are my beloved,” a voice calls out from heaven, confirming the revelation of Isaiah’s prophecy. He will bring justice to the world. His light will obliterate darkness. His word will exonerate guilt. Resurrection will override death. All those who are baptized into Christ Jesus take part in his death and his life!
