Baptism is a miracle, a supernatural event where God changes our destiny as we are born again of water and the Spirit. We are commanded by Christ to baptize. Sometimes we baptize and then teach, other times we teach and then baptize.
As one of the means of grace, baptism works forgiveness in our lives. It is also a celebration of God’s calling on our lives. (He chooses us, we do not choose Him.) Part of baptism also is understanding who we are now in Christ, and then living into that new identity each day as we remember our baptism. If that is not your habit yet, try beginning each day by remembering God’s promise of forgiveness and rebirth given to you at your baptism, and then live as if it’s true, for it is!
