QUESTION FOR THE DAY
question is if you have repented of your sins by believing Jesus paid the price at Calvary, is water baptism necessary and
what is the purpose of water baptism?
Water baptism is a public/outward
expression of an inward belief. It has zero to do with salvation but everything to do with evidence of your repentance. If
you have repented, changed directions, and are now totally trusting Christ, then you will be convicted to do what He commands.
The two post-conversion commands in the Church Age are communion and baptism. Baptism is a one-time event, communion is multiple,
and both point to what Jesus did for us on the cross.
In the early church, having a public baptism
meant that you, and your family, could then be targeted by the Romans to be live food for the infamous hungry lions in the
weekly arena games. For the pagan Romans, the hot ticket those days was a good seat to watch four or five lions tear limbs
off a Christian family (father, mother and children) in the middle of the arena. So when a Believer said they wanted to trust
Christ, they knew it could mean death for them and their family. Yet the church grew mightily in those days.
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. -Philippians
choosing rather to endure ill-treatment with the people of God than to enjoy the
passing pleasures of sin . . . -Hebrews 11:25
