Scripture Reading: Matthew 3:13-17
Video: The Baptism of Jesus
Picture: John the Baptist Baptizing Jesus
- Why did Jesus have a desire to be baptized?
Why is it hard to keep all of God’s commandments all the time?
“He set the example for all of us to humble ourselves before our Heavenly Father . . . He was baptized to witness to His Father that He would be obedient in keeping His commandments. He was baptized to show us that we should receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. As we follow the example of Jesus, we, too, demonstrate that we will repent and be obedient in keeping the commandments of our Father in Heaven. “
Robert D. Hales
