Tearing the Heavens Open

First United Methodist Church Tech Team

God tore the heavens open at Jesus' baptism to bless him with the Holy Spirit that would equip and empower him to do the hard work of redemption. The Spirit descending like a dove, may cause us to see the moment as peaceful and serene; when, in fact, it was a moment of warfare, a moment when God began to wage war with sin for our sake. Those who are baptized believers of Jesus Christ are enlisted in that same fight to redeem the world. As we celebrate Jesus' baptism and remember our own, don't forget to give thanks for God's power that it is at work in you and through you.
