Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Baptism of the LORD

Gospel Passage
Matt. 3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be
baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be
baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let
it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.”
Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came
up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the
Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice
from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well
Questions for discussion -

1. God the Father says from Heaven about Jesus, “This is my Son, my Beloved,
with whom I am well pleased.” Do you think God, our Father, is well pleased
and happy with you?

2. Why do you think that John the Baptist did not want to baptize Jesus?

3. The day of your baptism is the most important day of your life, because it is
on that day you became a child of God. What day is the anniversary of your
baptism (if you don’t know, you must look it up!)? What could you do to make
this day special in your life?
