God Acknowledged Jesus As Family At Baptism


“One day Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and John baptized him in the Jordan River.  As Jesus came up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Holy Spirit descending on him like a dove.  And a voice from heaven said, ‘You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.’”  Mark 1:9-11

Lord, I know that John witnessed Your Spirit descend onto Jesus when He was baptized, and he even heard Your voice from heaven acknowledging Jesus as Your Son. Yet when life got tough for John and he was imprisoned by King Herod, John sent his disciples to ask Jesus is He was the one. So John doubted Jesus when the circumstances of life didn’t match what he expected to happen. I confess that I’ve done the same thing, doubting You when problems come my way. Forgive me, and help me to have more faithful trust in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
