The Heavens Opened and a Dove Descended
There is something very interesting about the dove
appearing at the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit
descending upon Jesus in the form of a dove and resting on
Him. The dove is a remarkable representation of the Holy
Spirit. In ancient cultures doves were known for their
gentleness and affection, used often as a symbol of peace.
The Holy Spirit filled Jesus with wisdom and understanding,
and Jesus mission was to reach out to every person who
would open their heart to Him. He knew everything about
people and was able to truly love them in a way that only
God could express.
