For the LORD Was with Him

9 January 2022

Book: Acts, Isaiah, Luke, Psalms

Sermon given by the Rev. Mark R. Galloway (Bishop-retired) on 1 Epiphany, the Baptism of the Lord (1/9/2022).

What is the significance of Jesus’ Baptism? The Rev. Galloway answers this question in light of Luke’s words: “for God was with him” (Acts 10:38). The Baptism of Jesus had tremendous importance for his earthly ministry, and it modeled our own call to righteousness that begins in Holy Baptism.

Readings: Isaiah 42:1-9; Psalm 89:20-29; Acts 10:34-38; Luke 3:15-16, 21-22
