Jesus is the Anointed One
At his baptism Jesus bowed to the will of his heavenly Father and took up the task of freeing the world from the horror of sin.
Sermon on Acts 10:34-38 preached at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church by Pastor Brian Hackmann.
Father in heaven, at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan you proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit. Keep us who are baptized into Christ faithful in our calling as your children and make us heirs with him of everlasting life; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
