TEXT FOR SUNDAY, January 13, 2019:

Luke 3:15-17, 21-11

 


PReparation for worship

 “To Jordan when our Lord had gone,
His Father’s pleasure willing,
He took His baptism of St. John,
His work and task fulfilling;
Therein He would appoint a bath
To wash us from defilement,
And also drown that cruel Death
In His blood of assoilment:
‘Twas no less than a new life.”
                 - Martin Luther, 1541

 


Pastor's Note

Dear Ones,

We are just beginning our study this year of our union with Christ. I believe that this truth is key to understanding the Gospel. In today’s passage, the Baptism of Jesus, we see the depth and breadth of that union acted out in the waters of the Jordan River.

Warmly,
Steve
