January 5-11, 2020

Jesus appears as the Christ, the Anointed One. The titles “Christ” and “Messiah” both mean “The Anointed One,” and they describe how God prepared Jesus for his mission. Since the days of Othniel (Judges 3:10), the Spirit of the Lord empowered God’s heroes to do his saving work. At his baptism, God anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit and with power and declared this son of Mary to be the Son of God—the one anointed to be the Savior of mankind.

This week’s readings focus our attention on Jesus’ baptism and the blessings that we receive through our baptism.

Here is this week’s “Together in the Word” for your personal and/or family devotional use.

May God continue to grow your faith, as you hear and study his Word this week!

Your Brother in Christ,
Pastor Wagner

I am a redeemed child of God, forgiven by the blood of Jesus, washed in the water of baptism, and called to serve him as a husband, father, son, brother, friend, neighbor, and pastor.
