DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

John’s Testimony of Jesus: In today’s Gospel, John the Baptist proclaimed that Jesus will “Baptise with the Holy Spirit.”  Ponder on, “. . . filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus lives and fulfils His Father’s Will.  His Spirit also lives in us to: encourage, enlighten and empower us to live the Gospels daily.  Are you experiencing this Spirit of Jesus?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Jn 1:29-34

The next day, seeing Jesus coming towards him, John said, ‘Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. It was of him that I said, “Behind me comes one who has passed ahead of me because he existed before me.” I did not know him myself, and yet my purpose in coming to baptise with water was so that he might be revealed to Israel.’

And John declared, ‘I saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven and rest on him. I did not know him myself, but he who sent me to baptise with water had said to me, “The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and rest is the one who is to baptise with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.’
