J. Evan Kreider spoke on the Baptism of Jesus from Luke 3:1-22. John the Baptist gave three practical examples of how to demonstrate repentance: share your wardrobe and food with the needy, collect only what you earn, and be satisfied with your wages. We don’t know why Jesus went to John to be baptized, but to be consistent with the other baptisms, surely it was for the symbolic act of washing away the past and resolving to live differently. With faithful family members like Mary, Elizabeth and Zechariah, Jesus must have had a good upbringing, but still needed a fresh start to his ministry. May God give us guidance as we aim to make better decisions in the coming year. [KH]
