For the LORD Was with Him
Speaker: The Rev. Mark Galloway
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
