“JESUS DID WHAT HE DID BECAUSE HE KNEW
WHO HE WAS!”
Quote by Laurie Langdon from his book He is— I am
The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.
THE NECESSITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Bible Story: Jesus’ baptism. Matthew 3:13-17.
Laurie’s Metaphor of the Water Bucket and the Oxygen . p9
Reflection for Parent(s): Every home a house of praise!
Somehow Jesus learned who he was, where he was from, and where he was going. He had a sense of his goal, the “joy that was set before him”. Today we want to acknowledge the role the Holy Spirit plays in making Jesus who Jesus is. Why? Because when we place our faith in Jesus, it will be Holy Spirit who imparts, reveals, anoints, and overshadows and make it possible for us to “live in Christ”.
Holy Spirit is the One who makes Jesus’ life on earth possible. Remember Mary’s question, “how..?” and Gabriel’s answer, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you.” Something incredible happens when Holy Spirit moves in a person’s life. And to do life in Christ we need Holy Spirit.
