A Lesson from John the Baptist

“But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.”
— ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:14-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

I love this passage of scripture! We can learn so much from John here.. John was humble. He recognized who Jesus is, while realizing who he (John) was and was not. Not only this, but John also understood what he needed from Jesus.

My prayer is that everyone comes to know Jesus for who He is. That we understand who we are and what we need, that only Jesus can give.
