John the Baptist was initially sent by God before Jesus was born to send a message of repentance of their sins by baptism will lead to eternal life. Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist because even though Jesus was sinless in all his ways, he needed to be baptized to be able to receive the holy spirit from God his father.
How Was The Baptism Of Jesus Different From John The Baptists
When John the Baptist baptized people with water it was to cleanse them of their sins only. When Jesus baptizes people with water it not only heals us from our sins but also fills us with the holy spirit. This is only possible as Jesus is the son of God.
Why Is Baptism So Important
Baptism is important for any person who truly wants to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Being baptized firstly fills you with the holy spirit. Also, it is a testament to your faith moving forward in one’s life in Christianity.
Being Baptized is a personal belief that Jesus died for you so that you may through him enter into the kingdom of heaven. Baptism should symbolize a covenant with God that you will walk the righteous path and obey his commands.
Baptism is a testimony to one’s self that one’s life to that point in time was heading in the wrong direction and one knows what sacrifices need to be made to walk the path of righteousness.
What Happened To Jesus When He Was Baptized

What Did God Say When Jesus Was Baptized
