Matthew 3:13-17- 13 At that time Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan River and wanted John to baptize him. 14 But John tried to stop him, saying, “Why do you come to me to be baptized? I need to be baptized by you!” 15 Jesus answered, “Let it be this way for now. We should do all things that are God’s will.” So John agreed to baptize Jesus. 16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he came up out of the water. Then heaven opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on him like a dove. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love, and I am very pleased with him.”
Here is the problem man’s understanding of getting baptized is not Gods. Yes John baptized Jesus in water, but it was a gesture of faith. Jesus came to save us from our evil ways. When He died on the cross for us our sins where washed away. As a true Christian, one who Professes for the first time, from the heart. Jesus, you are my Lord and Savior. I truly believe in you and I want your forgiveness and I want you to come into my life. If that is heartfelt and true. Then at that moment we are baptized in the Holy Spirit. The baptism in water is just symbolic to show, we are cleansing our selves of our old ways and starting out clean. When most pastors say you should want to be baptized, they mean or should be meaning, they want you to come to Jesus and for you to shed your old self and start a new clean life in Christ Jesus.
Are you doing all things that are God’s will? Or are you fulfilling your own will? When we do our best to fulfill God’s will God fulfills us.
