John Completes His Testimony to Jesus

Text: Luke 3:14-22

This Sunday we will cover the transition from John’s public ministry to that of Jesus’ as John gives his final testimony to Jesus and Jesus is baptized.  At Jesus’ baptism the Holy Spirit descends upon Him like a dove and the Father’s voice proclaims, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well pleased.”

Every child yearns for approval from his father.  Some adults struggle because they never heard their father say, “I am proud of you.”  Jesus is the beloved Son in Whom His Father is well pleased because of Jesus’ perfect obedience.  Because we are in Jesus, we are loved and accepted by God the Father.
