January 8, 2018

Over the last couple of weeks we have focused at different points on the naming of Jesus;  Emmanuel Рthe God who is with us; wonderful counsellor; mighty God, prince of peace.

On January 3rd we celebrated the wonderful feast of the Holy name of Jesus – the One who Saves…

and then today, as we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus we hear God name Jesus as “my Beloved”. What a powerful moment this is in anyone’s life – to know themselves named as beloved.

As we begin this new year, may we live in the assurance that we, with and through Jesus are the beloved of God.
