Luke 1:5-25 is about the birth tidings of John the Baptist.
1:13 But the angel said to him, "Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.
1:14 "And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.
1:15 "For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
1:16 "And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God.
1:17 "He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, `to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
John the Baptist has borne witness to the truth like the 7 burning and shining lamps as follows:
11:11 "Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
The task of John the Baptist was to baptize people with water. He was the greatest man that has ever been borne by a woman. So the water baptism is a great thing. It is not only as a requirement from the church but also as a live-dead thing spiritually.
The smallest person in the Heavenly Kingdom was Jesus. But Jesus was greater than John the Baptist.
3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.
3:14 And John [tried to] prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?"
3:15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit [it to be so] now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
John the Baptist refused to baptize Jesus with water because he knew that Jesus was greater than him. But Jesus wanted to be baptized by John because He wanted to do God's will. It means that Jesus was humbled Himselfin the water baptism, He surrendered his pride/dignity in water baptism.
Jesus humbled Himself up to the peak condition when He was upon the cross.
2:8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to [the point of] death, even the death of the cross.
Jesus was obedient until He died upon the cross = Jesus wasgiving up all his desires up to sacrificing Himself fully to be obedient until the death upon the cross.
Jesus as the Head has had the water baptism, so we as the body of Christ must also experience the water baptism.
6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
The true baptism is people who repent must be immersed (be buried) with Jesus into the water and live in the new life.
John the Baptist represented the law, while Jesus represented the kindness/grace.
So, the water baptism is a great separation between John the Baptist and Jesus = a separation between the law and kindness/grace.
After having the water baptism, we live in His kindness.
In water baptism, we are born from carnal men (having huge desires, also big lusts) to the spiritual ones, become the newborn baby (from big to small, being humbled like Jesus).
The practices of the newborn baby are as follow:
