Close Encounters

When Jesus comes to be baptized, John the Baptist’s response is basically, “You’ve got this backwards. You should baptize me, not the other way around.” Peter reacts the same way when Jesus is going to wash his feet. In the first encounter, once Jesus is baptized, the entire Trinity is revealed. God, the Father is there saying, “This is my beloved Son.” The Holy Spirit descends like a dove. When we are face to face with Jesus, when we encounter Him in our lives in a real and tangible way, our reaction will always be one of humility and awe. We are never worthy of even being in His presence. But, He humbles Himself before us, waiting for our approach, waiting to serve. In this way, we can come and see what He has in store. It’s amazing.
