A lot of us don’t feel ready. “I want to go to Bible School – but I’m not ready”, “I want to pursue my dreams – but I’m not ready”. The question is, when are we ever ready?
Jesus did not wait to be baptized ‘when he was ready’. In fact, baptism only started the journey for him, as it does for all of us.
Luke 3:21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened
Jesus did not wait to be baptized until he had accomplished something significant. He did not wait until his ‘ministry’ had reached a few people and he felt better about himself because of it. He got baptized because he needed heaven open over his world. He got baptized because for him too it was the moment where everything started.
When we feel we are not ready, we can follow Jesus’ example by taking the plunge in. The plunge itself will make us ready. It is in the stepping out that dreams become reality, and potential is fulfilled.
