The First Sunday after Epiphany
The Baptism of Our Lord
The long-expected Christ has arrived; the waiting is over as the Son of David is anointed by his baptism. The Father’s approval sounded from heaven. When we are baptized, we are clothed with Christ, having our hearts washed clean, and we receive the same thunderous approval from the Father in heaven. Create in me a clean heart, O God!
Here is God's Word that teaches us that beautiful truth:
1 Samuel 16:1-13
Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1) God-willing, I will see you and worship with you this coming Sunday or Monday.
