weekly scripture reflection
As Matthew tells the story, baptism was an empowering experience for Jesus. He felt the presence and power of God’s Spirit, and in that power began his work. I wonder how often we feel empowered by our baptism. I wonder what our lives would look like if all the energy that goes into worry or guilt or shame were redirected to being God’s person in the world—powerfully.
What did it mean to Jesus to be identified as God’s Son?
How is Jesus’ experience of baptism similar to or different from yours?
