Thank you for joining us on this journey of scriptural reflection. We are working on preparing our hearts for Lent. Our instructions are:
1. Read the scripture
2. Think about the overall meaning of it.
3. Pray and ask God to reveal what the meaning is for you.
4. Contemplate how you might respond to God’s message in this scripture.
5. Record your thoughts.
If you need further explanation of our process, please feel free to look back at our previous post, “Who Are You Lord?”
“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! He is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘A man is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’ I did not recognize him as the Messiah, but I have been baptizing with water so that he might be revealed to Israel.”
Then John testified, “I saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and resting upon him. I didn’t know he was the one, but when God sent me to baptize with water, he told me, ‘The one on whom you see the Spirit descend and rest is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.” – John 1:29-34
