Pleasing The Father
Mark 1:9–13 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” 12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.
Jesus’ life & ministry serves as an EXAMPLE of what we should do and as a DISPLAY of what we could never do for ourselves.
Jesus’ baptism reveals the Triune God:
- God the Son’s obedience,
- leads to God the Holy Spirit’s empowerment
- resulting in God the Father’s affirmation!
