Romans 8:14 (NIV)
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.
(Pick up an egg) God is three persons in one. God is the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
How can we explain it? Well, this egg right here has three parts. There is the shell, (crack open), the yolk, and the white stuff. It has three parts, but it is still one egg.
As people were coming to John to be baptized, they were wondering if he was the Saviour they had waited for. John heard what they were saying and he told them, “I am baptizing you now, but very soon someone greater than me will come. He is so great that if He asked me to carry His shoes it would be an amazing honour.”
John continued to preach and baptize people until one day Jesus came by to be baptized. John didn’t know what to say; all he thought was, “how could I, just a regular man baptize Jesus the Saviour of the world?”
John said to Jesus, “You should be baptizing me. I cannot baptize you Lord.”
Jesus replied, “It’s important that I do this now. I am ready and I want to be an example to others and show them that it’s important.”
So John took Jesus and baptized Him. He placed his hand on His back and laid him down into the water until He was covered. Then he brought Him back up again. As soon as Jesus was baptized the sky opened up and the Holy Spirit came like a beautiful white dove, and landed right on Jesus shoulder. Then a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, I love him and I am pleased with him.”
