Baptism of Jesus
January 8, 2023
We have way more choices than people in the past had, even compared to two or three generations ago. We have choices about what we wear, what we live, what technology we use, whom we befriend, what occupation we pursue, whom we love…the list goes on and on. We live a world of “designer me” in which we can be who we want to be.
Yet, in spite of all of those choices, we don’t find ourselves and happier. Pastor Rob reflects on the self-absorption and anxiety that these decisions create. Where shall we turn?
The waters of Baptism.
As we reflect and celebrate Jesus Baptism (Matthew 3:13-17) and learn about Jesus mission and identity, we learn about our own mission and identity.
A reflection on decisions, anxiety and the good news that the fundamental choice in life — that God has claimed us beloved children — has already been decided for us.
