“As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. Suddenly the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and resting on Him.”
The Spirit responds to Jesus’ “coming up from the water at His baptism “descending on” Jesus. Jesus needed Holy Spirit in order to fulfill his purpose. God is interdependent and does not act alone.
God does everything God in concert with His Son and Holy Spirit. God did not create us alone.
Neither does God perfect us alone. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work together in complete unity,
totally dependent on each other. Working together to perfect us and bring us back into God’s spiritual image and likeness, fruitfulness, multiplication, replenishment, and dominion.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,
and subdue it: and have dominion.”
PRAY: Father, I thank you for my relationships. Thank you for giving me people for my life and vision. Let me always provide care and compassion. May we never become selfish about love and possessions, but always render love unconditionally “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me”
(Psalm 51:10-12). Thank You, Jesus! AMEN.
