Water and soap.
That's what you need to wash your hands clean of all those invisible germs. If you only use water, then you'd better return and do the process again. (Something our preschoolers know all too well)
But what about the dirt on the inside?
No amount of Dial soap will take care of it.
God has the answer.
He gives us baptism. In it, God washes us - not just with water - but in the incredible love of our Father, the powerful blood of our Savior, and the strength of the Spirit to wash away unbelief.
Don't take my word for it. Look at the promises that God tells us are associated with baptism.
"Be baptized and wash your sins away." (Acts 22:16)
All of you who have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ." (Galatians 3:27)
RENEWAL & REBIRTH:
"He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit." (Titus 3:5-7)
A NEW START:
"We were buried with Jesus through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead...we too live a new life." (Romans 6:4)
Jesus commanded, "Go and make disciples of all nations by baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." (Mt. 28:19)
Baptism is a gift that God wants to give YOU and YOUR CHILD.
We are offering baptism in this weekend's services.
