Real Hope for Those Who Need It
Jesus's baptism is the first public act of his ministry, and through Christ's baptism God brings hope to his people and all who hear or read these words in Matthew 3:13-17. What had been somewhat secret up to this point in Jesus's life (Matthew 1-2) is now on public display, and the announcement that all of God's promises are being kept and realized through Jesus is beginning to be made known to the world. This truth, when we really see it, will give us hope for ourselves and for this world, no matter what dark times we may face. And understand this hope, nourishing and living it, is what it means to be a Christian.
