Water Baptisim

Notes & Response

You are on a journey to be who God made you to be and to do what God made you to do! After salvation, water baptism your next step of obedience.

One of the first things Jesus did as he was beginning His years of ministry was to get water baptized. When we get saved and become a follower of Jesus, this is one of the first things we should do as well.  

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:13-16

Baptism is an immediate action of your belief. Baptism in scripture is a decision that a believer makes to put the old sinful nature in the past and start a new life living in new relationship and what the Bible called resurrection power.

We are baptized with Christ, the old life goes down in the water and our new life begins as we rise out of the water. This is called resurrection power, the same power that Christ had when he rose from the dead.

Deciding to follow Jesus is truly an internal heart decision, but water baptism is a public declaration of your faith in Jesus.  You are declaring – I am a follower of Jesus Christ! You are dying to your old way of living and taking on the new life of Jesus. This is new devotion in action.
