A few years ago Heidi and Wes were baptized on the same day. It was Easter Sunday 2007.
Just before the Lord Jesus ascended he said, “Go into all the world and make disciples, BAPTIZING them….” A disciple of Jesus is a follower of Jesus. A follower of Jesus is baptized. If a person will not be baptized they should not consider themselves a follower of Jesus. That is a sobering thought. It would be like my wife telling me, “I will marry you but I won’t wear a ring, change my name, or have any public ceremony.”
I would think, “Are you sure you want to be my wife, if you don’t want anyone to know?”
Baptism is a matter of simple, humble, obedience to the plain teaching of Jesus and the clear message of the Bible. If you are not yet baptized, imagine what God might have in mind for you if you step forward in obedience to His command and follow him. What would the next exciting step be after that? What might God have in mind for you?
