The Baptism of the Lord
Isaiah 55:1-11; Response: Isaiah 12:2-6;
1 John 5:1-9, Mark 1:7-11

Can you recall a moment in your life which proved to be a ‘game-changer’? Mine was the day I chose to offer myself for the priesthood.

Jesus left his old life and opted for a new one – that of a teacher, preacher, and healer. His Father approved and he was anointed by the Holy Spirit. For some of us there is a decision to be made with God’s grace; for others it’s the renewal of a choice made previously.
