A few years ago, a man who wanted to argue with me about baptism posed a situation where he was crawling through the desert and wanted to accept Christ, but had no water in which to be baptized. Wouldn’t God save him anyway?
I responded by saying that I would leave that philosophical question to the desert preachers. We were in Kentucky, a land filled with rivers, streams and lakes. If he wanted to get baptized he could, but he would rather bring up fantastic scenarios that might relieve him of his responsibility to obey Jesus.
He eventually submitted to Jesus and was baptized.
What about you?
“And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.”—Acts 22:16.
