John the Baptist understood his place in Kingdom of God. He understood that Jesus is the Son of God and that only Jesus could deliver the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. However, at this moment in time, John the Baptist is the vessel of God who participates in God’s plan of redemption. John brings Jesus into the waters of baptism. While Jesus does all of the work, John is the instrument of God. Today we will consider how this is all still true in our lives.
Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17
