Baptism adorn us with a new attire

Feast of the baptism of our Lord

Readings for the day:

Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7
Psalm 29: 1-4, 9-10
Acts 10:34-38
Matthew 3:13-17

Reflection:

This is my beloved Son: this was the first few words that was uttered after Christ’s baptism. Much more, as followers of Christ that has been ransomed by his blood. Immediately after our baptism, the gate of heaven open down to us paralleling the way Heaven opened when Jesus stepped out of the water and the Holy Spirit is being outpoured into our life and we become instantly renewed.

So, baptism for us Christians is a day of joy for we are adorned anew with a holy attire, the one we should preserve jealously till death(pure as white as snow before God),so, praises should not be found wanting on our lips. Whether we were baptized as an infant or as an adult, the same spirit was given to all to pitch from and we so enjoy it in super abundance, for God shows no partiality. All is acceptable to God provided you accept his invite.

May we then who are children of a loving father go out and fulfill our baptismal promise.

May God help us to attain this through Christ our Lord,amen.
