The greatest miracle that we can experience is the miracle of being born again.
Jesus died on the cross and rose again, which enables anyone who believes, to get to experience the miracle of being born again. The picture of this resurrection is demonstrated in believers’ lives, as they enter the baptismal waters. One of the most beautiful and meaningful moments to witness is when a person goes under the water during baptism, which is a powerful representation of a burial. As they go under the water they die to the old man, and come up from beneath the water as a new spiritual man that has been born again, leaving all the things of their past behind, coming completely alive in the same manner as Jesus came out of that grave.
Remember we are saved by faith; therefore, baptism is a demonstration and expression confirming our faith in Jesus. Over the last few months, I have been blessed to see the life-changing effect that this act of faith has had in so many individuals’ lives. Watching new believers get saved, and then immediately following it up by entering the baptismal waters has been so rewarding. People’s lives change radically; it is incredible to see how these individuals have such a desire to pursue the things of God and get very close to Him.
Colossians 3:1 (NKJV)
1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
This Easter let’s celebrate the resurrection of our precious Savior with great excitement remembering that it is no longer I that lives, but Christ who lives in me, and I have risen with Him in the Spirit, and the day will come that I will live with Him in a glorified risen body forever.
Let’s shout it from the rooftops and share it with everyone we know. Let us not forget this Easter, how great salvation is, and that it took Him everything to give this precious gift to each one of us. Thank you, Jesus!
He has Risen! The Grave is Empty!
