Acts 8:36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?”
There is nothing greater than the moment people come to understand the need to be baptized. When they come to see that Jesus loved them literally to the point of death, death on a cross. When they come to realize that they need forgiveness for their sins and a new start, in a new direction. When they come to see that they need to follow the example of Jesus and be cleansed through the waters of baptism, oh what a great moment it is for them, those who love them, and all of those who love the Lord. Of all the decisions we can make in life, this is one of the most important. To decide to change, to decide to give your life over to God, to decide to receive forgiveness of the infractions that have occurred to this very moment of your life, what a decision. God wants all people, everywhere, to make this same decision. After hearing the Word, the eunuch knew exactly what he needed to do and did not want to wait for another moment to arrive. Have you made this decision within your life? Are your thoughts still wrapped around the idea? Maybe you have already, some time ago, but something has changed. Maybe now is the time to step back on track. Maybe now is the time to hesitate no more. Follow the example of the eunuch, and decide now to follow Jesus.
Lord, change my life, change my heart, change my direction, change my purpose, change all of me into Your follower.
