Jesus - The Pattern For Ministry
In Mark chapter 1:9-13, we take a close look at the beginning of the ministry of Jesus, and we see three important things. First, we see more evidence that Jesus truly is the Son of God. Second, we begin to see a clear pattern on how we are to serve God in ministry. Third, we see more reasons to fall in love with Jesus all over again.
9 It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. 11 Then a voice came from heaven, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." 12 Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness. 13 And He was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to Him. (Mark 1:9-13 NKJV)
