The story of Jesus’ life in the Gospels moves rapidly from birth to adulthood. Just a couple of weeks past Christmas, we are already reading in Matthew of the baptism of Jesus as he enters into his ministry in his late 20’s.

One statement by Jesus in Matthew 3 has always challenged me. In reply to John the Baptist’s protestation that it is Jesus who should baptize John, Jesus replies: Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” How do we know what is right and wrong? What does it mean to fulfill all righteousness? These are the questions we’ll address in this Sunday’s message as we ask ourselves, “Are we doing all we can to live God’s way?”

Grace, peace and love to all in this new year!
