The grace of God, and the innocence of our Lord Jesus Christ, is from heaven above; and though it is manifest in the flesh, it is not an object of sensation, as of the waters, but revealed therein, as upon the earth. Yet the earth is to be cleansed of sin, by the wrath of God poured out upon the Son, “Behold, the lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Therefore, Christ’s feet are dipped in water, and his head is baptized by his messenger, as of the body, and the spirit descended, and abode upon him; and he himself is lifted up, that the grace of God might rest upon the earth.
