"We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life."
Buried with Christ and Raised to Walk in Newness of Life
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It doesn’t change our eternal destiny or our standing with God. Rather, it is a public expression of what has already transpired in our lives. It is a declaration of our faith in Christ and our decision to become one of His followers. A good illustration of the significance of baptism is that of a wedding ring. The ring is a symbol of the love and promises shared by husband and wife. It is worn proudly as an expression of belonging to another and as an expression of love for another. Like the wedding ring, baptism is a symbol. And, like the ring, it is a significant one – for it is the one our Lord himself gives us.
