Vital signs- Tuesday, January 11th, 2022


 

“Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’”

(Acts 2:38)

 

I read somewhere years ago about a little boy who got saved in the children’s church service. The pastor of the children’s church service said to the little fellow, “Now you need to go over and tell them at big church that you’ve been saved, and you need to get baptized.” Well, the boy didn’t quite understand what he was being told, so he went and told the pastor, “I’ve been saved, and I need to get advertised.” This is a funny mix up, but his words were true. Once you get saved, you get advertised. You’re saying, “Here I am, and I belong to Jesus Christ. I want everybody who sees me to know that I have been buried with Him by baptism into death and raised to walk in newness of life. I am identifying myself with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

• Why is it important to identify with Jesus—to advertise ourselves for Him?

• Read Matthew 10:32-33. What did Jesus say about our identification with Him?



Do one thing today to “advertise” for Jesus.
