Passage: Luke 3:21
Duration: 16 mins 51 secs
When Jesus was baptised, he saw the heavens opened. What does an open heaven mean to us? First, God grants us a new identity, a kingdom identity. This identity will be challenged, but it is there for us. Second, this identity means that God's Spirit dwells in us. Third, an open heaven with the Spirit descending means new opportunities to help advance God's kingdom. [ Organ - Epiphany 1 ]

There are many different things we think we are "born to", things we love to do. Christians, perhaps, are born to celerbrate, to leap for joy along with the infant John as his Lord approached. We may find this joy in the hearing of God's word. We celebrate in the power of the Spirit. And we may rejoice to share with others the good news of God in human form, come among us to call us home to him. [ Organ/Choir - Advent 4 ]

With the message of salvation, Christians have much to shout about. We can shout for joy in God's power and redeeming care for us. Secondly, we shout for mercy for our failure to recognise our Saviour, and to serve him. Finally, we can shout about his glory, and his raising us up to share his heavenly feast.
