Jesus Baptism

Tonight I want to talk about Baptism and Jesus.
Can you any of you tell us why we Baptized?
Let’s talk about Jesus Baptism.
Matthew 3:12-
Now there was a man by the name of John the baptist as they called him that was walking around the wilderness around Judea.
He was wearing Camel-Hair Garment with a leather belt around his waist and his food was locust and wild honey.
Now locust just a FYI is like a grasshopper like a big grasshopper.
But he was walking around yelling out. Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near.
Now think about that. we would call this person crazy most likely in todays world.
But he was fulfilling what the prophet Isaiah said would happen before Jesus came on the seen in the old testament.
Matthew 3:3 CSB
For he is the one spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, who said: A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way for the Lord; make his paths straight!
Matthew 3:
Believe it or not a lot of people from Jerusalem, Judea and all over the area were coming out to see him.
Many of them were baptized by him in the Jordan river, and confessing their sins.
They were admitting where they screwed up in there walk with God.
and then comes Jesus.
Its because
Matthew 3:13–14 CSB
Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me?”
Now John is trying to stop Jesus here. Basically he is struggling with the idea of baptising Jesus.
I mean Jesus is perfect. he doesn’t need to be cleansed or confess his sins.
Matthew 3:13 CSB
Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him.
But I think that is something we get wrong, so often we look at the act of baptism as the thing that saves us. Instead of what it is intended to be.
See Jesus was doing this to to please God. Because a prophet had called for this.
See later in Matthew Chapter 11, we see John the baptist being called the greatest of the prophets.
So Jesus was just doing what was being commanded of him.
in verse 15 it says.
Matthew 3:15 CSB
Jesus answered him, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John allowed him to be baptized.
So Jesus was just doing what was being commanded of him.
Just like we are called to! We are called to live a life like Jesus. So we should emulated him right?
It says in
Matthew 28:18–20 CSB
Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:
Matthew 3:16–17 CSB
When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice from heaven said: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.”
Matthew 3:16-17
Matthew
Matthew 3:13–17 CSB
Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me?” Jesus answered him, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John allowed him to be baptized. When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice from heaven said: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.”
Matthew 3:12–17 CSB
His winnowing shovel is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and gather his wheat into the barn. But the chaff he will burn with fire that never goes out.” Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. But John tried to stop him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me?” Jesus answered him, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John allowed him to be baptized. When Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water. The heavens suddenly opened for him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice from heaven said: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased.”
