Jesus spoke of John the Baptist's ministry and declared, "...the Pharisees and experts in the law rejected God's purpose for themselves, because they had not been baptized by John." Luke7:30
Context of John's message:
- Repent (opposite of pride)
- Declare the change (Baptism - visible expression of I can't, He can)
- Follow Jesus (day by day discipleship).
Even 'experts' can't experience God's purpose and plans when self (instead of submission) is the route used.
I bend my knee,
to hear, to be changed,
to Know and Walk in Your ways.
