Baptism of the Lord

Gospel Matthew 3:13-17

Ceremonies are usually held for people in leadership, like Bishops and Presidents. They are called to work for the wellbeing of the people. In a similar way, with Jesus’ Baptism, His work leads to our salvation.

Baptism is to:

* Show us that Jesus is the Son of God.

* Free us from sin.

* It’s a gateway to the other Sacraments.

Jesus was also baptized to:

  1. Show unity with us.
  2. To identify with humankind.
  3. The acceptance of His mission.
  4. To convert sinners.
  5. So that our sins are washed away, to a fruitful righteousness.

The Father is well pleased with Jesus and with us as well who follow Him.
