    Charles Spurgeon in one of his sermons in 1893 says, "Read the New Testament impartially and you will always find that those who were baptized were Believers. They believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and then they were baptized into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."

    Once, we have given our lives to Christ and have turned away from all sins we are to submit ourselves to the ordinance of Water Baptism in order to declare publically our identity with and loyalty to Christ. The doctrine of Water Baptism is often abused in many places. Some people do infant baptism.

    From our text we see Jesus undergoing baptism as an adult. We learn from there that children who cannot confess their sins know Christ as saviour cannot be baptized. Another error to avoid is sprinkling of water on people instead of immersing them in water as commanded and demonstrated by Christ. We must avoid any water Baptism that involves being immersed in water three times as that is erroneous too.

    Challenge: Water baptism is one the cardinal teachings of the Bible.

    Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to avoid error

    Quote: Those who were baptized were believers
