Declaring Our Faith Through Baptism
Luke 3:21 "When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened..."
Have you ever worn a team jersey or cheered for your favorite sports team in a crowd? That public declaration of support is akin to our baptism. Baptism is an outward and public declaration of our inward faith, a proclamation that we are on Team Jesus! Jesus himself was baptized at the commencement of his ministry. This act of baptism by immersion becomes our way to identify with his life, death, and resurrection. There's an unparalleled sense of joy in declaring ourselves members of Jesus' team. Have you taken this step to identify with him publicly?

Dear Lord, I thank you for the beautiful symbol of baptism, which signifies the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. May this act of obedience continually remind me of its power. In Jesus' name. Amen.
