You Are My Beloved…

Baptism of the Lord, 10th January 2016.
“… He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.”
(Luke 3:16)
Baptism, the starting point of to our life in Christ. During Noah’s time, God used the waters of the earth to eradicate sin but realised that such waters could not wash away all the sins of mankind, not until they were transformed in Christ. Jesus went down to transform and cleanse the waters so that when we get baptised in the Spirit and Water, we may be cleansed of all our sins and made his Beloved. God claims us and He makes us His own the moment we get baptised. When we get baptised, every irregularity and unevenness in our lives becomes regular and the rough areas be made plain (Isaiah 40:4). Baptism gives us the grace of God, training us to renounce irreligion and worldly passions, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world as we await our blessed hope (Titus 2:12). It is that door of hope that opens up the heavens to us.
So let the waters and Spirit of  baptism flow within us as we work towards perfect happiness, life everlasting.
