Repentance and Baptism
Published on 05/20/2015
Pastor Mark preaches from the Jordan River, where John the Baptizer baptized many, including Jesus Christ. John preached a baptism of repentance to the religious people who came to hear him, whom he called a “brood of vipers.” John urged them to live a life of true repentance instead, which includes conviction, confession, repentance, and restitution. Baptism shows that repentance is made possible through Jesus—his life, death, burial, and resurrection.
