I preached today about the Lord Jesus being baptised by John, from Matthew chapter 3, verses 13 to 17.
Addressing the Lord’s words:
“Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.”
I sought to present the Lord Jesus acting in perfect obedience to all God’s commands, then His assuming the sin of His people and finally; Heaven’s affirmation of His accepting his great work with the promise of the power to accomplish it .
We had a lot of people in Church this morning, a number of families visiting the area for holiday / vacation, joined us to exalt in and magnify the God of all grace.
