Bishop Daniel Mueggenborg's Reflection

FEAST OF THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD

Our Scripture passage for this Sunday comes from the Gospel of Matthew 3:13–17. Each year we read a different version of this moment in the life of Jesus and gain distinctive insights from the Gospel. This is a passage with which we are all familiar that tells us of the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan River. There are some significant elements to this passage that are worthy of our reflection.

The first thing to note is that Jesus chooses to be baptized by John. Our Lord’s action is troubling to John because he clearly acknowledges that Jesus is the greater one and that Jesus has no need of repentance. Nonetheless, Jesus desires John’s baptism, and our Lord speaks His first words in the Gospel of Matthew when He says, “It is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” These are important words. Jesus did not need John’s baptism because Jesus had no sin. Even so, Jesus understood that some things are done out of righteousness rather than out of our personal need. Jesus was baptized not because He needed to be cleansed in the waters but because He wanted to give to the waters of baptism the power to cleanse us all! He joined with sinful humanity in a moment of solidarity not because He Himself was sinful but because He wanted to identify with us so as to lead us in the way of salvation. Sometimes we do things not because we need to do them for ourselves but because it is our duty to “fulfill all righteousness” so that others can benefit.

For whom do you need to be leader in the ways of faith?
What do you do in your faith life to set a good example for others to follow?
Who in your family, friends, or professional life seems to be waiting for someone to give them a good example to follow, and what can you do to provide that example?
