Greater is no love than this that a man will lay down his life for his friends
The baptism of the Lord Jesus Christ teaches us humbleness

In addition to the beautiful article above, i feel to share on this doctrine of baptism.
While we look on the word itself, Baptism is an act and is an element. Therefore it will be true to note that Jesus was baptized in water (element). “Jesus came up immediately from the water” (Matt 3:16)

Jesus baptism was the baptism of the Messiah himself; the fulfillment of the sign.
While on his mission “the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world! This is He of whom i said, ‘After me comes a man who is proffered before me, for He was before me.’ I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore i came baptizing with water.”

“Jesus came from Galilee to john to be baptized” (Matt.3:15) so as to fulfill all Righteousness.
His baptism was not of repentance of sin, He needed not to repent, He is the Christ, the anointed, and the Holy one of God (Mark 1:24; Luke 1:35; Acts 10:27; 1John 2:20).
Jesus Baptism was a conferring of Sonship. (Matt. 3:16-17) “As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
At His baptism the spirit of the Father spoke to show that a man in the Earth is able to be filled with the spirit of God, and by this work of the Spirit we have come to know the Father who Has sent Him. Well, Jesus the Christ knows the voice of the Father, He is familiar with it, He has been calling Him Abba,
(Mark 14:35-36) Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him. “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
With the spirit of the Father conferred we became the sons of God, and by whom we call Him Father
(Rom 8:15-17) “For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
Wao! what Adam had lost was now restored in Jesus and much more so now the spirit was living in man. Jesus was not just a ‘living soul’, but a ‘life giving spirit’
Jesus baptism satisfied the will of God, thus fulfilling all righteousness and so it is the will of God for us too
