Tomorrow is a day that will be a huge milestone in my life.
I am getting baptized!!! I have looked forward to this day for quite some time now. The Lord has worked everything out in His timing and it's going to be extra special that it will be on the same day as my mother's birthday (that means I'll never forget it!).
Baptism is an outward proclamation of an inward transformation. It is where you publicly declare your death, burial, and resurrection with Jesus Christ. As we see in Scripture, repentance and Salvation in Jesus comes before baptism. Christians are commanded to be baptized. It is making a commitment to Christ.
"Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."
"For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."
1 Corinthians 12:13
"A man who knows that he is saved by believing in Christ does not, when he is baptized, lift his baptism into a saving ordinance. In fact, he is the very best protester against that mistake, because he holds that he has no right to be baptized until he is saved."
