Part of the Historic Lectionary - Pre-Lent series, preached at a Sunday Divine service

Let us bow our hearts in prayer: Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of Baptism, by which we have died to sin through Your Son's death. Increase our knowledge and understanding of this miraculous gift, so that we may appreciate its worth in our daily lives, as we struggle against temptation and the devil's accusations. Continue to send Your Holy Spirit to us, and so increase our trust in Your salvation. Amen.

Matthew 3:13-17

13Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 16And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (KJV)
