Some of the 2010 Baptism Candidates
Lesson 1: Redemption
Redemption is defined as the purchase back of something that had been lost, by the payment of a ransom. Examples include: to redeem from captivity, servitude, punishment, or forfeit, by paying a price to buy out of servitude or penalty; to rescue; to deliver; as, to ransom prisoners from an enemy. Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45, both scriptures explain the role that Jesus came to play as the Father’s servant Redeemer, by giving his life for the world.
Lesson 2: Repentance
A response to guilt for breaking God’s word and turning aside and doing our own thing. This guilt then leads us to a change of mind, which leads to a change of purpose, ultimately a change of life/the way we conduct our lives, as we come to the knowledge that we must honour God in our daily living because he created us for his glory, Psalms 100 & 1st Cor 6: 19-20.
Lesson 3: Water Baptism
As one of the ordinances of the gospel, it is associated with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, and the laying on hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost. Baptism has always been practiced whenever the gospel of Jesus Christ has been on earth. Matthew 3: v4-17.
Lesson 4: Renewing of your mind
To make new again; to restore to freshness, perfection, or vigor, to give new life to; to rejuvenate; to re-establish. Romans 12: v2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect”.
Lesson 5: Commitment
To give in trust; to put into charge or keeping; to entrust. Commitment is a very rare quality in our society today, not many are willing to commit to anything. And some of the people that commit are committed to the wrong things, such as drugs, violence, stealing, and many more things that are destructive not only to the individual and their families but also to society on the whole. But when we commit our ways/actions and our plans for our future to the Lord. Psalms 37.
