Fulfill All Righteousness
Dear beloved: Pics, Stevo getting baptized in the creek at Living Water; Reception desk the crew made at Living Water Home
Matthew 3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him v14 and John tried to prevent Hm saying, " I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?" v15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
Stevo, the former street boy, had resisted baptism for two months. When we talked to him about being obedient to Jesus, we told him that Jesus Himself was baptized. Jesus submitted to baptism to fulfill all righteousness, to be in right standing with God, and to prepare Him for obedience to go to the cross. Some of the street boys Stevo lived with told him it wasn't necessary, but after praying about it for a couple weeks, he submitted. The angels in heaven are now rejoicing! We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the gospel to the nations of Africa, as we preach, baptize, and teach all that He has commanded us. Last week at Living Water Fellowship we had nearly 50 people attend, glory to God! God is moving in Makunda. May God bless you as you pray!
