Acts 2:38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
Since Christianity began, baptism has played a major role in the walk of faith. As John baptized Jesus, the act of washing away our sins was done through baptism. For some, it was important to have a child baptized as soon after birth as possible. For others, baptism waits until the person makes the decision on their own. For some baptism means giving the child a name and placing them before God; for others it is making the commitment to become a child of God. Whatever reason one accepts, baptism washes away our sins and brings us closer to God.
Prayer of the Day.: Father in Heaven, at the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan you proclaimed him your beloved Son and anointed him with the Holy Spirit. Make all who are baptized into Christ faithful in their calling ti be your children and inheritors with him of everlasting life; through your Son, Jesus our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. AMEN (LBW, 1979. Page 15) ... See MoreSee Less
