Faith Sheet:

  1. Read Mark 1:1-11. What stands out to you from verses 9-11?
  2. What comforts you about God being a Triune God? What doubts do you have? How does knowing the Triune God impact how we live in community?
  3. Why was Jesus baptized? What happened the day of Jesus’ baptism that impacts you today? Now read Matthew 3:13-17, Luke 3:21-22 and John 1:32-34. What other truths do you see that add to Mark’s account of Jesus’ baptism?
  4. Even though water baptism is commanded, God baptizing (immersing) us into His life by His Spirit is what is crucial for our daily lives. Read Romans 6:3-4. What is water baptism really declaring to others?
  5. Jesus would have read Zechariah 4:6 many times and He lived by this scripture. Use this verse to pray for yourself and others.
