“And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he (John) suffered him.”
Matthew 3:15 KJV
Jesus said, ‘For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.’ Now even hereunto were we called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow his steps. Whoever saith they abide in Him ought also so to walk, even as He walked.
