Why Him?

Luke 3:21-22

This Week – One of the most common questions I have been asked in my years in the ministry is, “why was Jesus baptized?”  Why was the perfect sinless Son of God willing to do that?  This week we give three reasons why Jesus submitted to John the Baptist for baptism.

Monday – A man who has counseled many people believes that every adult is either benefitting from the influence of their parents, or they’re in recovery from their childhood.  We talk about parental influence in this message in a powerful way, discussing the baptism of Jesus. In your life, are you benefitting from your upbringing, or are you in recovery?

Tuesday – Jesus probably walked 60 miles to be baptized by John.  One commentator pointed out that some people refuse to be baptized because it’s too inconvenient!  Really? The first reason we share why Jesus was baptized was that it was an act of identification with those He came to save!  Who would that be?  You and me!

Wednesday – Nothing illustrates “finality” like the physical burial of a person at a cemetery.  Our “burial” in baptism represents a finality to the old life and beginning of the new life in Christ.  The second reason for Jesus’ baptism was a “declaration” of who He is.  Luke says a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, in whom I am well pleased!”

Thursday – The third reason for the baptism of Jesus was for our example.  The Apostle Peter says in his letter that “everything Jesus did was for our example!”  Have we followed His example in this area of life? If not, why not? We share one of the most powerful stories you have ever heard about the examples in your life, represented by the “voices” you have heard in your past.

Friday – We go back to the opening illustration of this message.  Are your children living in benefit from their upbringing by you, or will they need to go into recovery because of their upbringing?  That’s a sobering question for all of us.  What example have you set personally and spiritually for their lives?

This Week’s Visual Story

 

FORGETTING

Most people have something or someone they would like to forget.   What would that be for you?  Jim Downey’s story will move you deeply.  He would give anything to forget the man who killed his police officer father.  He would give anything to forget the day there were flashing lights in his driveway with other officers there to deliver the terrible news.  What do we do with the unforgettable in our lives? Listen and perhaps find a possible answer.

  6. I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

  8. My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
