The Baptism of the Lord
Mark 1:7-11

“He went about doing good works and healing all who were in the grip of the devil.” My friends, Jesus is unique. In His birth, His life, His death and His resurrection, He has no peer. In a very true sense, he stands alone.

We cannot leave the matter there. Jesus is not simply a lovely painting to be admired. He is a savior to be trusted. He is an example to be followed.

As Jesus was baptized and began His public ministry, we begin anew today to live out our baptismal consecration as He did.
