Hello, child of God! Today, I want to tell you the story about a man named John. People called him "John the Baptist" because he baptized people. He told others about what good things God was doing in his life, and how God could do good things in their lives, too. We baptize people today because John baptized Jesus, and Jesus told us to go and do the same. Through the waters of baptism, God claims us as his own. It is an amazing reminder that we are a part of God's family.
