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.
