INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT BAPTISM

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Mark 16:16

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

KJV

Mr. Samuel was appointed as the new Commissioner for Works in his state; He privately received his letter from the governor’s office. For some reason, there was an omission somewhere that led to his name not publicly announced on the state media outlets before now. Nobody but he, the people in the governors Cabinet, the governor and a few other people Knew he had been appointed commissioner.

The day Mr. Samuel arrived in the ministry to resume as the new Commissioner; the security officers didn't let him into his new office because they didn’t even know there was a new commissioner. This happened because his appointment was not yet properly announced.

For the past two days, we have discussed on the first two elementary teachings about Christ. These are doctrines that any true Christian is to be grounded in as they are foundational teachings of the faith (see Heb 6:1-3).

Today we shall be looking briefly at INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT BAPTISM.

This teaching reveals that everyone who believes the gospel and accepts Christ should of necessity be baptized.

Baptism in the church is both that of water Immersion and the baptism in the Holy Ghost and it is compulsory, that is why it is an instruction. Baptism into Christ symbolizes that we are dead to everything that is not Christ. It means we are now alive to Christ and dead to the world. It is a public declaration of our faith and it makes things easier for us spiritually. It is like the spiritual public announcement of our new status which is essential for us as new children of the most high.This is very important because it gives you more licenses to access the things of God, and spiritual grounds to combat the kingdom of darkness and receive what God has given you.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for calling me into your glorious light. I thank you for the privilege I have to be born of your Spirit. Please lord; help me stay filled with the Holy Ghost, in Jesus name. Amen

# Your baptism is Spiritual public announcement of new status in Christ.
