I had a chance to watch a salesman in person the other day work his craft as he talked about the benefits of upgrading a home’s windows.
To help make one of his points he took two window pieces made of different materials and then he said (and I quote), “Now we’re going to baptize these pieces.”
So what did he do with them? Did he pour water over them? Nope. Did he sprinkle it on them? Nope. He simply took the pieces and he immersed them down in the water.
Now if only there was a way to get some “salesman” of the gospel to learn what that salesman of windows already knew about baptism then we’d all be one step closer to a real unity when it comes to the word of God.
“Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:3-4)
