Matthew 3:13 (KJV) Motivation for Baptism

Matthew 3:13 (KJV)
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.

It is impossible to get over the grace, the condescension and the humility of this act. God became man and dwelt among us. Then God with us submitted Himself to be baptized.

This act, if for no other reason, ought to give every believer motivation to follow Christ in baptism

  • By faith in Christ
  • By immersion as was Christ
  • By the proper authority as was Christ

To my reader:
Have you been baptized Scripturally? Be sure to follow the Lord in this important ordinance. I would love to hear from you. Leave comments below.
