My Baptism Began My Ministry For You – John 1:29-34
The next day John saw Me coming to him and told the crowd, “See that Man. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. This is the One I was talking about when I said, ‘There is a man coming after me who is greater than I am, because He was living even before I was born.’” He said this to let everyone know I was the One coming after him.
John added, “I didn’t know who He was, but for this purpose, I came baptizing with water.” Then he testified, “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I did not know Him, but the Lord, who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The One on whom the Spirit comes, and stops there, this is the One who is the Messiah. He will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’”
Then John said, “I then noted and have borne witness that He is the Son of God.”
#WalkWithMe.—Follow Me wherever I lead. I will give you a willing spirit, courage to endure, and strength to do it.
The New King James Version – John 1:29-34
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.
I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”
