As revealed in the Bible, we worship one God who reveals Himself in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. And, our scripture for today is one of the places where all three persons of the Godhead are revealed in one passage. At the baptism of God the Son (Jesus), the Holy Spirit descended like a dove and alighted upon Jesus. The voice from heaven (God the Father) revealed Jesus as His beloved Son. So, praise and exalt the Lord as you read this Bible passage. He is great and He is worthy!
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and will you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
