For Christians, water baptism is an important symbol. It's a lot like what a wedding ring is to a married couple.

Key Points:

  • A Symbol of a Defining Moment.
  • A Symbol of Commitment.
  • A Symbol of a Bigger Reality.

Talk About It
  1. If you are planning to get baptized, what is your motivation?
  2. If you have been baptized, what was the experience like for you?
  3. Baptism is a simple matter of obedience. Make a list of some of the other things Christ calls us to do as Christians. Which ones are especially difficult for you? Where does baptism rank, and why?
  4. Read Romans 6:3-4. How are we identifying with Christ when we get baptized?
  5. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
