Day 23 of 40 (Matthew 3:13-17)
Jesus travelled from Galilee to get baptized by John.
At first, John the Baptist attempted to talk Jesus out of the whole thing. John felt like he needed to be baptized by Jesus – not the other way around! But Jesus reassured John that getting baptized was the right thing for Jesus to do. So John baptized Jesus in the Jordan river. When Jesus came up out of the water, heaven came open! He saw the Spirit of God come down upon Him! The Lord spoke from heaven saying “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased!”
