The Uniqueness Of Christ (9)

As soon as Jesus is publicly announced as God’s one and only Son and our one and only Saviour, Satan takes action, seeking to divert Jesus from His God-appointed pathway, the way that brings salvation to the world. Satan is, however, one step behind God. At Jesus’baptism, something remarkable had happened - ‘the Holy Spirt descended upon Him’ (Luke 3:22). Jesus had been filled with the Holy Spirit since His conception - ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you … therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God’ (Luke 1:35). There is, however, in Jesus’ baptism, a mighty empowering for service which equipped Him for victory over Satan.
