Day05. Living Water - Prepare the Way, Sterling
John the Baptist prepared the way to Jesus' public ministry by baptizing him with water. He was 'a voice' in the wilderness calling out to people to prepare for the coming King. It is relevant that John was the first prophet in 400 years, the silent years between the Old and the New Testaments.
During Biblical times water was an important symbol because it was necessary for survival and cleansing. John baptized with water for repentance, or the turning away from sin. Selfishness and greed would be replaced by generosity, dishonesty with honesty, violence with self-control and self-pity with contentment.
Jesus identified with us as sinners when he was baptized with water by John the Baptist. This work of repentance was to prepare the way for Christ, the lamb of God, who would take away the sin of the world.
John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' "
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
