A Defining Moment

36

Jesus' baptism was a defining moment in his ministry because….

I. It revealed that he was the One whom John the Baptist was preparing the people to receive. -REVELATION – The revelation that he was the divine Messiah
II. It revealed Jesus' full identification with his people in their need of forgiveness for their sins. -IDENTIFICATION – His identification with sinners he came to save.
III. It revealed the descent of the Spirit from heaven upon him. -EFFUSION (outpouring).
It was his effusion, inundation in the Spirit of God.
IV. It revealed the Father's love for and pleasure in his Son.
It was the AFFIRMATION of the Father's love for and pleasure in him.

This "defining moment" in Jesus' ministry is one also for us who believe in him.
