w/c 9th January
Our reading this week is Matthew 3: 13 – 17
Jesus Is Baptized by John
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River. He came to John, wanting John to baptize him. 14 But John tried to stop him. John said, “Why do you come to me to be baptized? I should be baptized by you!”
15 Jesus answered, “Let it be this way for now. We should do whatever God says is right.” Then John agreed.
16 So Jesus was baptized. As soon as he came up out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. 17 A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the one I love. I am very pleased with him.”
Prayer for the week:
Help us to be the best that we can be,
To be wise in the worst of times,
To endure through the struggle,
Song for the week:
We watched the video below about the baptism of Jesus. We thought about what Baptism means for Christians and why John didn't think he should baptise Jesus.
We also thought about the holy spirit as part of the trinity.
