Baptism of Jesus

At that time Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River so that John would baptize him. John tried to stop him and said, “I need to be baptized by you, yet you come to me?” Jesus answered, “Allow me to be baptized now. This is necessary to fulfill all righteousness.” So John agreed to baptize Jesus. When Jesus was baptized, he immediately came up out of the water. Heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and resting on him. A voice from heaven said, “This is my Son whom I dearly love; I find happiness in him.” (Matthew 3:13-17, CEB)

Sometimes God asks us to do something and we think that it needs to be done a different way. John did that here. Jesus came and said baptize me, and John was like, I think you need to baptize me. But sometimes God’s plan has things we don’t understand and we should just go with it because God knows what God is doing.

Follow where God is calling you and know that God will always be with you!

Loving People. Loving God.
