Sometimes we think we know what’s coming. We have an event all laid out neatly in our heads of how it will go.
John did. Jesus was going to come and kick the crap out of a load of people and was going to put people in their places. There was going to be fire, wind and axes falling. There was John and then there was Jesus. A great, powerful leader to kick start a revolution.
Then Jesus arrived and humbly asked to be baptised by John.
He was one of us and would slum it with the rest of us.
Whatever you expect of Jesus. Expect more.
