Why Was Jesus Baptized? (Mk 1:7-11)

January 10, 2021

Jesus is baptized not so that the waters of Baptism make Him holy, but so that He make the waters of Baptism holy for us to be baptized and share in His life, death and resurrection. Our salvation is sacramental, that is a divine reality present in our physical world. Jesus is the first sacrament, Divinity present in our humanity. The sacrament of Salvation that is Jesus is shared with us through the sacraments Jesus instituted; Baptism and Eucharist. By our Baptism we hear the Father say to us "This is my beloved son/daughter with whom I am well pleased." We are made God's children through adoption, and we are joined; physically and spiritually to Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit. This gives us power and strength to embark on our Public Ministry all the days of our lives.
