Become Alive Again
"When John the Baptist witnessed and said about Christ, 'Behold, the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world' (John 1:29), and when John immersed and baptized the Lord in the Jordan, the mission of Christ in the world and the path of our salvation was shown. That is to say: The Lord took upon Himself the sins of mankind and died under them [immersion] and became alive again [the coming out of the water]; and we must die as the old sinful man and become alive again as cleansed, renewed and regenerated. This is the Savior and this is the path of salvation."
- St. Nikolai Velimirovich on the Holy Theophany
