Prayer

God of our salvation,

your bow in the clouds

proclaims your covenant with every living creature.

Teach us your paths and lead us in your truth,

that by your Holy Spirit,

we may remember our baptismal vows

and be keepers of your trust with earth and its inhabitants. Amen

Scripture: Mark 1: 9-15

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased." And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news." (1: 9-15)

Reflection

John the Baptist and Jesus meet in the Jordon River. Each one is following a call from God! "It is I who should be Baptized by you!” John says to Jesus. Bowing his head and keeling, Jesus submits to John’s message of Repentence. John encourages his followers to the next step: Follow Jesus, he has the way of Eternal Life!
