Today we baptized a heap of young people. Just brilliant to be part of.
We don’t teach water Baptism as a symbolic thing. We teach real life change from Matthew 3:16-17.
As Jesus is our example in all things, we look at His baptismal experience, and encourage people to expect theirs to be like that.
Three significant things happened after Jesus rose from the waters of Baptism…
1 – the heavens were opened to Him – He had a clearer vision of heavenly things, greater understanding and insight into the divine (not quite right when we talk about Jesus, as He is God). Eternal things, before closed, were now accessible.
2 – the Holy Spirit descended upon Him – expect this, believe for this, don’t be surprised if this happens to you, it happened to Jesus.
3 – a voice of affirmation came from heaven, this is my beloved Son – you might believe you are a child of God, but if revelation of this comes to you in a greater way, it will totally change how you see yourself and how you see God. Great confidence comes from great affirmation.
Baptism in water can truly change your life,expect it to…
