Pastor David Taylor
Matthew 4:1-11
In Jesus baptism’ we have the acceptance of Jesus to begin what would become three and a half years of focused, driven ministry that would end in His sacrifice. From this moment on He would be about doing the will of the Father by building the kingdom He came to establish. But, He would do it by being a servant—not a ruler. And His ministry would be characterized by sacrifice—not privilege; suffering—not ease. Ultimately the cross casts a shadow across the waters of Jesus’ baptism.
