Baptism is a symbol. When we submit to Jesus Christ and become 'born again' he does a work in us. He gives us a new heart. A new nature. New desires. This is because what was dead in us now becomes alive by the power of God. In the same way that Christ was raised to life by God's power, so are we when our salvation occurs. The waters of baptism symbolize this most beautifully. As we are lowered into the water we produce a picture of someone dead being buried. But we come come up out of the water we reflect the new life that we've found in Christ.
There is no part of you that grace cannot touch. Just the same, as you are immersed in the water, there is no part of your body that doesn't get wet. What a fantastic display of God's super-sufficient grace. It reaches every nook and cranny, and cleanses every part of you.
We encourage all believers to be baptized. It would serve as encouragement to other followers of Christ, as they witness Him do a work in you. Also, your day of baptism will be, to you, a milestone. It will forever stand as a reminder of the commitment of faith you have made towards God, and the love commitment God has made towards you.
Even Jesus did it!
