Suurin kutsumus, joka ihmisellä voi olla, on olla Jeesuksen opetuslapsi. Jeesus itse on kutsunut meidät seuraamaan häntä tällä tiellä, joka johtaa rikkaaseen elämään ja iankaikkisuuteen.
John the Baptist preached a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins, but there is a baptism that goes deeper than the baptism of John. The baptism that Jesus came with is the death of the “old man” – the old mind that was sinful – and the putting on of a new mind – the mind of Christ, which is to deny oneself, take up one’s cross, and follow Him. Baptism is a testimony of a covenant between God and the individual – that covenant is also known as the covenant of a disciple. Baptism is an outward sign of one’s inward covenant of discipleship and everything that entails.
