I love word pictures, and Margaret Feinberg draws a beautiful one in her blog:
“With cool water droplets streaming down Jesus’ face, Mark 1:11-12 records: “And a voice came out of the heavens: ‘Thou art My beloved Son, in Thee I am well pleased.’ And immediately the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the wilderness” (NASB).
Jesus isn’t just baptized in water — He’s baptized in love.
Drenched in the divine delight. Immersed in the holy affection of God.
The same baptism you and I are invited into. Not just when we become followers of Christ,but each day. Each hour. Each moment.
We are meant to live as those who drip with God’s love.”
This morning, I’m trying to picture what I would look like today if I were “dripping with God’s love.”
How about you?
Wow! Thanks, Maggie, for the powerful picture you invited me to enter. Almost got my keyboard wet! I passed this on to some others last week and refreshed it in my mind and heart today. Peace and courage would be part of my reply to “what would I look like today if…?” God bless you… and soak you real good!
