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. (Romans 6:3-4 ESV)
Неужели не знаете, что все мы, крестившиеся во Христа Иисуса, в смерть Его крестились? Итак мы погреблись с Ним крещением в смерть, дабы, как Христос воскрес из мертвых славою Отца, так и нам ходить в обновленной жизни. (К Римлянам 6:3-4 Russian)
O LORD God, my dear heavenly Father ~ thank you for this new day that arrives as a reminder of your vast power to transform darkness into light. Open our eyes of understanding to more fully comprehend the power of the gospel of Christ Jesus to transform a sinful person with an obedient heart into a brand new and eternally valuable person. Annihilate the message of those who teach that a believer’s baptism has no purpose in your plan of salvation. Help every person who teaches your doctrine of salvation by grace through faith, to have pure and honest hearts and include the teaching of Christ about immersion in water as the way to connect to the blood that was shed for all sin. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
