Baptism into Christ brings us into Jesus’ baptism at the cross. He called his sufferings there his ‘baptism’ – on the cross, Christ was baptized in suffering and death. He was buried. He rose again. That baptism of suffering, burial, and resurrection is applied to us by the Holy Spirit in our baptisms. Are you baptized? You’re not your own, but his! Are your children baptized? Why would you possibly keep them from the sign of the covenant and the visible promise of God, identifying them with the visible church? Are you an adult that believes and as yet is unbaptized? Why do you delay? Jesus gave his life for you! Come to him. Repent and believe. Be baptized, washing away your sins in his name.
