Who Is He?
Posted by Melissa
HAVE YOU EVER written or received a note that reads: I like you. Will you go out with me? Check yes, no, or maybe.
If you have, then you’re not alone. It seems like at some point in everyone’s life, they come across one of these notes. Some of us spend more time writing them than receiving them. If the person you send it to checks “no,” then you write one to someone else. If he or she checks “maybe,” then you at least have a chance. If he or she says “yes,” then you finally have a significant other because that person has acknowledged that they at least like you too. Don’t you think it’s good when you finally know how someone feels about you?
Read Mark 1:9-13 and reread verses 10 and 11.
How is the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) represented in this passage?
Who came down to Jesus? Who spoke to Jesus?
What did God say to Jesus? Why is this event in Jesus’ life important?
How did this experience in the life and ministry of Christ help Him in verses 12-13?
Jesus was recognized as the Son of God by God Himself. God acknowledged to everyone that He has a father-son relationship with Jesus Christ. And with that relationship comes all authority. They may not have realized who He was beforehand, but no one left that river without knowing who Jesus really was.
Have you recognized Christ as the Son of God? Without that understanding, Jesus is just another guy who dipped in the Jordan River.
