WHAT DOES THE BAPTISM OF JESUS SAY TO US?

Liturgical Colour: 

Mark 1:7-11

Why did Jesus, the sinless Son of God, submit Himself to a baptism of repentance? Even John the Baptist was puzzled. I don’t propose to solve the mystery today. Instead I want to consider what the Baptism of Jesus says to you and me – and how it is a testimony to the fact of human sinfulness and our need for repentance. He was well aware of the evil in men and women. Did they not spit upon Him, crown Him with thorns and nail Him to the Cross?
