Have You Been Baptized?

Sin never goes away by itself. It only accumulates.  What can wash away our sin? In today's passage John the Baptist gives us the answer. He saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, "Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." John 1:29. The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin. Jesus came to take away our sins. But there is more! Not only did he come to take away sin, but also Jesus came to make us live the victorious life over sin by baptizing with the Holy Spirit. Have you been baptized with the Holy Spirit?
