A Beautiful Reminder

A beautiful sunset can transform the worst of days into a beacon of promise. Vivid reds, oranges and purples painted across the sky always remind me to appreciate God’s majesty and the beauty of His love. When I get too busy to do that, I fail to completely follow His plan for me.

Psalm 19 is a poetic description of God’s creation. The skies are described as silent messengers, assuring us of God’s presence and power. Psalm 19 also reminds us of our duty to follow God’s commands. “The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight to life.” (Psalm 19:8).  As Christians we must follow these commands which involves taking our next steps in our walk with Christ. 

One of those commandments is baptism. Baptism is a public display that demonstrates we were once lost but have chosen to follow God’s ways instead of our own. Baptism is essentially the beginning of our spiritual walk with Christ. To fully appreciate God’s beauty and splendor, we must ensure we are following His callings.

Reflect:

  • If you have accepted Jesus as Savior, have you publicly accepted Him through baptism as well?
  • If not, what is holding you back?
