Have you heard of give up lust for Lent campaign?

The Law. Don’t do this, but do this instead. It’s a fascinating show of original sin when people think that the way to stop sinning or to overcome a struggle with sin, is to use more Law. As I read the headline if this article I was fairly certain that I wasn’t going to be getting the Gospel as the answer to such struggle with sin and temptation.

Matthew 3:13-17

Baptism. Such a word can invoke many things to many people. Some think it’s an act we do for God, that it is just to show our obedience, that it is an outward sign of an internal faith. Others just believe what the Bible says about baptism.

What is interesting is that Jesus was baptized. Now, you might say they He was baptized as a model for us to follow, as if Jesus was the ‘New Moses’ giving us new laws to imitate, but you would be wrong. Check out this post on Armourofchrist.org on the baptism of Jesus. If you like it, subscribe, and even if you don’t then feel free to let me know in the comments or Contact page.

When we think of baptism, we often think of our own baptisms or a new baptism in the church. We even reflect on our baptisms in our morning and evening prayers, in the Divine Service, or whenever we make the sign of the cross on ourselves. Yet how often do we think of the Baptism of Jesus? Today we will be looking at just that.

Matthew 3: 13-17

13Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordanto John, to be baptized by him.14But John would have hindered him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and you come to me?”15But Jesus, answering, said to him,“Allow it now, for this is the fitting way for us to fulfill all righteousness.”Then he allowed him.16Jesus, when he was baptized, went up directly from the water: and behold, the heavens were opened to him. He saw the…
