We Trust our Belovedness
January 07, 2024
In Jesus’s baptism, we hear from the heavens that Jesus is the Son of God, and we witness that he did not come to serve alone, but to share in ministry in the midst of community. We see Jesus’s purpose affirmed, as he is filled with the Spirit to be the witness of God in the world. And we acknowledge that Jesus is God’s beloved, and that as God’s created humanity, we too are beloved by God; this is witnessed and affirmed in the way Jesus serves in ministry and in his willingness to serve God’s ultimate call to the cross for our eternal salvation.
