Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River some two thousand years ago influences our faith today more than we might realize. It says in Mark’s Gospel that the heavens were torn apart and the Holy Spirit descended. In the moment of our baptisms, the Holy Spirit descends upon us as well. How might it change the way you look at other broken and sinful people in the church to know that God has chosen to dwell within them? How might it change the way you look at yourself?
