Being Baptized in the Jordan River by Dr. O. S. Hawkins.

This lesson plan covers the transition of power from Moses to Joshua through the Israelites' crossing of the Jordan River.

Amen to that!!!  A perfect example of that scripture is when John the Baptist was asked by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to come and baptize him in the Jordan River. But he sort of hesitated, because he thought in his mind, why would one who is sinless, want a sinner to baptize him? And he expressed his thought to Jesus Christ. But then Jesus Christ corrected him, and told him that even though he was without sin, that it was the right thing to do. Because it was God's will Matthew 3:11-17.

JAN 19  The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity Day Two:    One has died for all (2 Corinthians 5:14) Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have been freed from the need to create our own meaning and from living only out of our own strength. Rather, we live in the life-giving power of Christ, who lived, died, and rose again for us. When we ‘lose’ our life for his sake, we gain it.

When Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he left Judea and returned to Galilee. He went first to Nazareth, then left there and moved to Capernaum, beside the Sea of Galilee, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.

And for those who lived in the land where…
