Baptism Now Saves
1 Peter 3:18-21
In our passage for this morning Peter taught that suffering for doing good is good because through it Jesus accomplished total victory over all his enemies and salvation for all God’s people. To illustrate Jesus’ total victory and salvation (or the certainty of it) Peter pointed his readers to Noah’s miraculous salvation. His reasoning seems to be that if God can physically save Noah and his family in such dramatic fashion, we can trust him implicitly to spiritually save us through Jesus. And, of course, baptism is the great symbol of all of this for the Christian Church. Please pray with me that God would stir our souls at this good news, cause us to want to identify entirely with Jesus, and be baptized in his name.
