Today's Message: 

Rediscovering Jesus: The Baptism of Jesus
by Scott Ancarrow


 

Isaiah 64:1-2

Mark 1:9-13

The baptism of Jesus, and the temptation that follows, evidence a greater Kingdom than the lesser kingdoms we pursue. 

Jesus baptism shows us WHO Jesus is and WHY Jesus came. 

Mark 1:9-10

see also Matthew 3:13-17

Hebrews 4:15

Jesus' baptism was a corornation! 

Acts 2:38

Mark 1:10-11

A cultural Christian is someone who has overlaid religion on a life they have already chosen. A disciple is one who orients their life on the Lordship of Jesus  - Bill Cochenoeur

Jesus' time in the desert rejects lesser kingdoms. 

Mark 1:12-13

Neither prayer nor repentance is passive work. Both move us beyond our own comfort. Both move us beyond a pace that moves fast enough to pretend all is well. They bring tears to our eyes as both force us to confront things that we'd rather pretend aren't a problem. Both move us to engage the pain in others and bring light to the darkness. Both require a willful turning in a new direction. 

The baptism of Jesus, and the temptation that follows, evidence a greater Kingdom than the lesser kingdoms we pursue.
