Series: Significance of Water Baptism
Baptism is one among the two important sacrament given to the new testament church along with Lord’s table. The word Baptism is a transliteration of the Greek word Baptizo which means to immerse. In Hebrew, it is referred to as mikveh- an immersion.” Why is Baptism important, is it more than a ritual? In this podcast Pastor Priji teaches on “Significance of Water baptism” listen and be blessed!
Declaring Jesus as our Lord and Saviour of our life is more special when it is done according to the ordinance that God has given to us in the New Testament. Just as for a man and women to come together, the area of marriage is important, so is baptism for a person who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. This not only gives you an opportunity to tell of your love for Jesus and profess your faith in Jesus, this is a moment to be celebrate with heaven and the others who stand with us.
When we are baptized, we are baptized into one body which is Christ. We are under the rule of Christ and under his control. Most people think that, to get added to a church, all one need is a church membership or some acknowledgment. Scripture is clear, to get added to the church, one needs to confess their love for Jesus which is through Baptism. And by doing that we will be added to the Body of Christ.
The seal of the Holy Spirit comes upon you, when you show loyalty to Jesus through baptism. The simplest example could be, when a person is recruited into a company, he is given a card that proves that he belongs to that company. Similarly, we need to understand we are sealed by the Holy Spirit when we show our loyalty through baptism.
God wants to celebrate with you as you declare your faith before everyone. It’s an occasion that will get you added into the body of Christ and seal you with the Holy Spirit. It’s our prayer that everyone out there will understand the importance of Baptism. God bless you!
