Scripture Reflection For The Baptism Of The Lord

Baptism is so incredibly important for the salvation of humankind, not only eternally but here and now.  Our existence depends upon it.  It gives us the affirmation we need from God by gifting us with the same intimate relationship Jesus had with the Father.  We are blessed with the direction and clear purpose we need in order to be productive stewards and faithful Christians.  Baptism calls us to remember, accept, and deal with the sins and inequties of our past regardless of how hurtful and serious.  We consciously choose to turn away from them and put on the new life of Christ.  To do this well, we must look hard and long at our sins and failing, listen to what they are saying and learn from them.  If we ignore the past, collectively or personally, or pretend that it never happened, we will never grow.  We will surely die.
