Our world is in need of repentance. It needs to turn away from religion and turn towards Jesus Christ. This is the message that John the Baptist had for the Jews of his day. They needed to repent and turn away from the rituals of Judaism and return to the God-given faith of their fathers. Their baptism was a symbol of this repentance.
Mark tells us of John's baptism of repentance, and then he tells of the coming of the One who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.
Listen and rejoice as we learn of the difference between John's baptism and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
