Title: The baptism of Jesus
Text verse: Mark 1: 10
And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove.
Message: The gift of the Holy Spirit is to have an impact on our life.
- At the baptism of Jesus it becomes clear that He acts in perfect oneness with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
- Baptism and sealing exist in close association with one another and must nevertheless be distinguished from one another. Together they effect the rebirth.
- Through Holy Sealing, God allows the believer to share in His nature. This has implications for daily life.
