Baptized Into Ministry

February 4, 2024

In our church calendar, the Ordinary Time follows after the celebration of Christ’s baptism last January 8 which marks the formal beginning of His public ministry. His baptism by John the Baptist is both His first public appearance and the inauguration of His divine ministry.

Jesus’ baptism represents the fulfillment of what is prophesied in the Servant Song found in Isaiah 63. God sends His Servant-Son, filled with His spirit, sharing His divine life and power, to accomplish the redemption of the world and bring new life to all of humanity. He is designated as the presentation of God’s people according to the Spirit. He is declared formally as the only Son of God, the Servant of Yahweh, anointed with His prophetic spirit.

The celebration of the Lord’s baptism reminds us of our call as baptized Christians to ministry. It invites us to reflect how our lives interface with God’s plan for our world. It speaks of the need to ask God to consider or approve what we plan to do with our respective lives. It makes us reflect on the need to submit ourselves and our decisions to God’s scrutiny and clearance. It makes us consider seriously the need to get God’s stamp of approval of what we undertake on a daily basis.  

The celebration of Ordinary Time is an invitation for us to reflect on the fullness of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. We are, indeed, baptized into Christ’s ministry, to proclaim and work for Christ’s kingdom in this world. This ministry of evangelization is at the essence of what we really mean when we pray so often “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.

Healing Lines
 

God knows that we are lovable and capable, but sometimes we don’t feel that way about ourselves. We can be tempted to let our mistakes and failures define us. Since abusive behavior often springs from how we respect ourselves and care for the image of God in us. Question of the Week: What is one thing you can do for yourself on a regular basis that will make you feel good about yourself and make your life more balanced and harmonious?
