Reflection: Jesus’ Baptism: Our Promise: Water And The Word

John, the Baptiser, the one who sets the scene and paves the way, shows the path to repentance and renewal. Imagine for a moment you have followed the crowd who sought out this wild man of the desert. Listen to his words as directed to you: “Brood of vipers!”, share, be fair, be content, repent and believe. The words when first spoken were truly shocking: change your life around; don’t live as you have been living, but start over. The message continues to hold true for us and has lost little of its challenge. As you prepare for worship this morning, ask God’s guidance into the areas that need it most.
