He will transform you into His likeness. You do the beholding–He does the transforming.
I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Baptism is faith in action.
I thought I could have leaped from earth to heaven at one spring when I first saw my sins drowned in the Redeemer’s blood.
God brings men into deep waters not to drown them, but to cleanse them.
Baptism is the initial step of a faithful heart.
Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Through salvation our past has been forgiven, our present is given meaning, and our future is secured.
In order to live a life of holiness, we must first receive new life from God – we must be born from above.
Just as water ever seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment God finds you abased and empty, His glory and power flow in.
If a spring has not been opened in a soul, a spring of living water from God’s own Son, no waters can flow and there is no life in you.
The God who made us also can remake us.
God’s people should be baptized because God commanded it, not because some church requires it.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward faith.
And as the circumcised in the flesh, and not in the heart, have no part in God’s good promises; even so they that be baptized in the flesh, and not in heart, have no part in Christ’s blood.
The seed dies into a new life, and so does man.
Baptism is bowing before the Father and letting him do his work.
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
