Summary: Faith in Jesus is being a part of something bigger than yourself.

Baptism seems like such a small thing. Water and a few words. Yet it’s a big thing. It unites us to Christ and makes His story our story. It’s a big deal. That’s why families travel from long distances to see a baby being baptized. That’s why pastors hurry to the hospital to baptize a baby who may not survive. That’s why people are baptized on the spot after church. I even know of a young man who was baptized in the swimming pool at a pool party because he thought Baptism was a big deal. It is a big deal. Your Baptism is a big deal. Through your Baptism, the story of Christ is your story. The voice of God the Father spoke at Jesus’ Baptism saying, “You are My Son whom I love; with You I am well pleased.” Because Jesus’ story is our story, these words apply to you as well. God would say to you this day: “You are my child, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

May the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, unto life everlasting. Amen.
