Sermon 07 January 2018 (Baptism of Jesus)
Jesus’ baptism was an epiphany by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: An epiphany is a revelation. Jesus didn’t need John’s baptism of repentance, but submitted out of obedience to the Father’s plan. The Holy Spirit confirmed Jesus’ identity to John the Baptist through a revelation. Jesus demonstrated His love for us through His choices to obey. We each need a fresh epiphany of His love … and our choices will reflect our love for Him.
