Sermon: "The Day Jesus Got in Line"
Rev. Billy Hester's sermon is based on the scripture of the baptism of Jesus as told through the writings from Luke3:15-17, 21-22. In his sermon, he asks the question; what it necessary for a sinless man, Jesus, to even be baptised? However, Jesus is one of us and through baptism, we accept that we are dependent on God and need to know who God is. Baptism is where we meet endless unconditional love.
