Permit it to be so now., for thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness… (Matt 3.15). Then when He had been. baptised came up immediately out of the water and behold the heavens were opened unto him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and aligning on him and suddenly voice came from heaven saying this is my beloved Son in-home I am well pleased (v16,17).
The above picture of Jesus baptism gives us believers the process of salvation where by God himself calls us sons also, and this process is thorough water and spirit (John 3:5) the new birth, through which every believer enters into in order to obtain sonship. “For thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness” A man can do many things to obtain righteousness with God but unless he is a Son (through baptism) then all his world of righteousness are in vain. Righteousness begins by obedience to Jesus and the new birth, the first command for all those who desire to be son’s.
