After talking about it for awhile and baptism being on our hearts for months now, Colby and I got baptized this past weekend. It was a sweet time and full of significance!

Even though we have both been believers for awhile now, we were finally able to express outwardly the inner transformation we experienced when we accepted Jesus as our savior. It was important to us that we were fully submersed in the water. In Greek, baptism means baptizo which means, ‘to submerge, dip, or immerse’. It signifies what Jesus did to save us – the death, burial, and the resurrection. What happens when we get baptized is the outward symbolism of what happens when we become believers – the death and burial of our sins and old life, and the resurrection of our new life.

We know that baptism has nothing to do with our salvation, but we also know how important baptism is to Jesus. We are excited to share outwardly what we experienced inwardly so long ago, for we are a new creation in Christ; the old has gone, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17!

    What wonderful news! I love the way you described it- we recently got baptized in February, and said it was an outward representation of an inward reality. And explaining what exactly it represents, and not as being what saves a person. Good post! I love reading these πŸ™‚

    Congratulations to both of you! How wonderful! You’re right when you say that baptism has nothing to do with your salvation but we are called to do it and it is a key act of obedience. We all know what God does when we are obedient… AMAZING things.

    A couple weeks ago my church did spontaneous baptisms. 153 people got baptized (I think there’s significance in that number, as 153 fish were caught by Peter in John 21:11)! I cried as I watched every baptism. I have been baptized (when I was 18) but I would like to get baptized again. I pray that one day I can one day get baptized with my husband.

    Congratulations once again! I’m so happy for you guys!
