Theme: Intimate – Jesus and the Spirit
Scripture: Matthew 3: 13 – 17
Summary: The Rev Eden Fletcher explored the contrast between the spectacular public event of Pentecost and the quiet, intimate moments of Jesus infilling with the Holy Spirit at his baptism in the Jordan. We considered the voice of God that accompanied that baptism ‘this is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased’ and asked if we sense God saying that over our lives.
We all enjoy the large celebration events with many people and much rejoicing, but let us to be attentive to the quiet moments where God can move in equal power.
For further reflection: Do you know the Spirit’s presence in your life, transforming your heart and mind and preparing you to engage in his work?
