As you read in the bible, there were 2 things that Jesus did to start his ministry, confession of sins, though He had no sin, and baptism of water. This what every believing jew was doing before the day of atonement. Jesus did it as an example. It’s an ordinance of the church. But that’s not the only baptism we go through. The baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire is what we are called to. This is the power of God to live the life God wants us to. There is another baptism that God wants us to walk in. It’s the baptism of death. I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ who lives through me. How many people can say they are dead to themselves? To fulfill God’s plan in our lives, we have to die. As Paul said, I die daily. As we go about our life we live God’s life on this earth. Jesus baptism was death. He was the example to us. As He said, if they hated me, so they will His servants. Have you accepted your death yet? You will never see the life of God come to fruition if you don’t. This is the baptism of life for every believer.
