My call...

Romans 10:13-14 (NLT)
For “EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

ISRAEL - Day 7

Caesarea Philippi

When Herod the Great died in 4 B.C. his kingdom was divided between three surviving sons: Archaelus, Philip and Antipas.

The territory that Herod Philip received for his territory was called Caesarea Philippi.

Most of Jesus’ early ministry took place in Galilee, which was part of Herod Antipas’ terrarchy.

But at least in one occasion Jesus and his Disciples went into Herod Philip’s territory.

Matthew 16:13-16... “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

Remember your Baptism at the Jordan..............(See Mark 1:1-11)
Baptism, as understood through the baptism of Jesus, represents the deep covenant of life that has been extended to us through God. Each time we witness the sacramental act of a baptism, we do well to remember that we too live by this same beautiful covenantal relationship of God’s love. Today I had the blessing to experience this remembrance at the Jordan River.
I invite you to remember your baptism and live!

At the border with Syria...........not everything is peace around here....

......let’s keep this country in our prayers.
