Sermon of January 13, 2013–“Somebody’s Calling My Name”

Luke 3:15-17, 21-22

Ecc. 4:12: "A Threefold Cord is not easily broken."
Ecc. 4:12: “A Threefold Cord is not easily broken.”

3:15 As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, 3:16 John answered all of them by saying, “I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 3:17 His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
