#4900 – Baptised into Christ

Good morning people who enter into the fullness of life in Jesus Christ.

Colossians 2:11-12 NIV In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self-ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

The power of being born again and baptised is found in our faith in the working of God. It is not about our works, our best, or about our self-rule.

It is about being fully immersed in Jesus Christ and fully raised to new life through what He accomplished on the cross!

Oh the power and completeness of the resurrection life of our Lord, King and Saviour Jesus Christ!

Our circumcision in the Spirit takes us from self-rule to Christ-rule. This is not a small shift or a slight adjustment.

Our spiritual reality is a death to life reality! There are no half measures in God!

Paul sums it up perfectly in the following scripture:

Galatians 2:20 NIV I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Christ lives in me – now that is Good News!
