Curious about Christian baptism? What does it mean to be baptized, and what effect does it have on the believer?
Here’s a 12-minute micro-sermon I recorded in the woods behind my house one day.
God loves it when his children publicly proclaim their commitment to his cause by imitating Jesus’s burial and resurrection in this beautiful ritual of rebirth. If you haven’t been baptized, I recommend making arrangements as soon as possible.
I think if I did this video again, I’d add something about the words the ancient believers spoke during baptism, such as: “Do you believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God? Do you renounce the Devil and his pomp?” We need more renouncing of the Devil and his pomp!
