Baptism

The following writing is inspired by Acts 8:26-40, ” And he commanded the chariot to a standstill, and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him.” Water is extremely important, not only to us but to the planet. We sometimes forget that it is not just some resource that gathers in a pond, river, lake, or ocean, it is more than that. Water is so much more than words and thoughts stumble not only of its meaning, but it’s existence also. When Philp ran up to the chariot where the Ethiopia Eunuch was, the eunuch was reading at a place in scripture that was talking about Jesus Christ. As they went their way, wrote Luke, they came to a certain water, and here is where the eunuch wanted to be baptized. Baptism is more than just a symbol, it is actually a new birth. If anyone wants to be a Christian must be born into it, the gateway is water, through the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit family’s name Christ, Jesus Christ.
