I AM Ready

Read Job 34:1 through 35:16; Acts 8:26–40

As they came out of the water, some cried, others laughed, a few raised their hands, and one even jumped up and down. Water from the baptism tank seemed to splash everywhere. Even the helpers got soaked.

Allen, a new believer, sat in the front pew and watched with interest and concern. His parents had him baptized as an infant, so why do it again? While Allen pondered his options, the pastor asked, “Is anyone else ready for baptism?”

As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” (Acts 8:36).

Allen jumped from his pew and ran to the tank. Not waiting to put on a baptism robe, he climbed in, wearing his Sunday best. After being fully immersed, he stood up smiling, knowing he had made the right choice.

Through water baptism, Christians identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Few outward expressions have greater significance.

Challenge for Today: If you have questions about water baptism, talk to a church leader about it.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
