On January 8, Pastor Jim preaches on Matthew 3:13-17.
Today is “Baptism of Our Lord Sunday.” It’s the day we remember the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan. It’s a passage that begs the question, “Why did Jesus allow himself to be baptized?” Even John had a problem with it and tried to prevent it. Was Jesus in need of the washing away of sins? Not likely. What was the significance of his baptism? What is the significance of yours?
