Matthew 3

~John the Baptist~

This chapter begins with yet another fulfillment of prophecy. Then it tells of John the Baptist baptising those who have repented of their sins. The Pharisees and Saducees show up, and he calls them on the table for their lack of true repentance. Jesus is coming and will baptize with the holy spirit and fire...and you better be sure your repentance is real.

Jesus' baptism then occurs. The trinity all together.

Wow. Jesus came indeed...his baptism is powerful and real. And yet I live most of my life as if it didn't really happen. Am I like the Pharisees....or am I a woman of true repentance.

Dear me to live my life fully for you. Help me to focus on you and you alone. Let my fruits show forth, showing you in all I do. Amen.
