This Easter Sunday, 6 people decided to go “all in” with Jesus through baptism! Romans 6:4 says: “For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives” (NLT). Baptism is an amazing picture of dying to our new lives so that we may live a new life for Jesus. Would you join me in praying for those who were baptized?
Lord Jesus, there is no God like you. In love, you paid the penalty for our sins. Your resurrection not only proves your power over death, but gives us new life! Let those who were baptized experience the fullness of the resurrected life. Strengthen them by your Holy Spirit to resist the evil one. Use them to bring your kingdom to earth. Amen!
