Serving Jesus in Our Community

Bible Notes

Galarians 3:26-27 (24.11.20)

Galatians 3:26-27 NIV
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

What is baptism? It is not getting into a tank of water or being sprinkled at a font. Baptism is literally immersing ourselves in Christ, his life, his will, his and character. It is not so much the conscious effort of trying to imitate him, although it is good to strive to be Christ-like, but the surrendering of ourselves to him and letting him overwhelm us, so that to ‘look’ at us is to ‘see’ him.

Your baptism was a symbolic act of giving yourself to Christ. Renew your commitment to him again today.
