Read Matthew 3:13-17


Read Matthew 3:13-17

13 At that time Jesus arrived from Galilee and came to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. 14But John tried to make him change his mind. “I ought to be baptized by you,” John said, “and yet you have come to me!”
15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so for now. For in this way we shall do all that God requires.” So John agreed.
16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he came up out of the water. Then heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and alighting on him. 17Then a voice said from heaven, “This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased.”

Think

When Jesus was baptized he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and alighting on him.  At the same time, God spoke, confirming Jesus’ identity as his Son.

Pray

Lord, let your Spirit speak to me; reminding me that I am your child. Let your Spirit transform me; so that I look more like you.
