Together With Jesus
S - But Jesus answered him, "Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he consented. (Matthew 3:15 ESV)
O - Jesus comes to be baptized by John and John denies and claims he needed to be baptized by Jesus. But Jesus tells him that they must together fulfill all righteousness together. So John baptizes Jesus.
A - Apart from Jesus I can do nothing, but together with him, doing his father's will, we cannot fail.
P - Father, help me to remember this truth. There are times I get out ahead doing my own thing for all the right reasons and that is still not doing your will.
