Continuing through our Lord’s life depicted in the Life of Christ icon, we arrive at his baptism in the Jordan by the John the Baptist. The Psalmist, Prophet Isaiah, and St Luke each reinforce this remarkable moment in Jesus’ life in their own way. And Christ’s very own faithfulness on our behalf opens the way for all baptized persons to take hold resurrection life and our Father’s love by faith.
Among the lessons for Thanksgiving, I am grateful for Psalm 100 and how it reminds me of the faithful God worthy of thanks and praise. I am also thankful for serving a church that still upholds the tradition of worshiping to better prepare our hearts for the joy and feasting we’ll share tomorrow.
