He [John the Baptist] went… preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
John the Baptist’s baptism represented a change of heart, which includes sorrow for sin and a determination to lead a holy life.
I must not just feel remorse for my sinful behavior but remorse, repend, remove and replace; determining to lead a good life by God’s standards.
Lord, I want You to be able to trust me with much; to share in Your happiness. Remain in me Lord, help me to do Your will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
