(The Baptism of the Lord)
Thus says the LORD: Here is my servant whom I uphold, my chosen one with whom I am pleased, upon whom I have put my spirit; he shall bring forth justice to the nations, not crying out, not shouting, not making his voice heard in the street. A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoldering wick he shall not quench, until he establishes justice on the earth; Is_42:1-4,6-7
This is not the warrior who conquers by killing everyone who does not follow Him. This is not the warrior who leaves widows homeless and orphans without nurture. This is Jesus, upon whom the Spirit of the LORD rests. And that Spirit is a Spirit of love, not hatred. He/She’s a Spirit of compassion and forgiveness. She’s a Spirit of Wisdom. And Jesus invites us to Come. Join with Him as One with the Spirit and learn the language of His LOVE!
Within Him there is LIFE!
