So every tree that isn’t producing good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 I am baptizing you with[a] water as evidence of repentance,[b] but the one who is coming after me is stronger than I am, and I am not worthy to carry his sandals. It is he who will baptize you with[c] the Holy Spirit and fire.
