The Basic Training Challenge – The Commander's Bio

Devotional

  


Day 2 — The Commissioning


Pray:


Lord God, quiet my soul and open my mind and heart to receive your Word. Amen.


Read: Matthew 3:1-17


Reflect


Jesus was the cousin of John the Baptist. For John, baptism signified a turning from sin and turning to God. Why do you think that John the Baptist was uncomfortable baptizing Jesus? Why did Jesus insist on the baptism? How did God the Father show His pleasure? How does God show His pleasure to us when we obey Him today?


Respond


Lord, speak to me, and let me obey your Word today. Amen.
