Faith and baptism are so closely related in the New Testament that they are almost always collectively grouped together. When we share the good news of Christ, we are to go, make disciples and baptize them. This public declaration is the first step of faith after someone chooses to follow Jesus. God causes the miracle (the heart change), and we act it out. Maybe your next step is to put your faith in Jesus. Maybe it’s saying yes to baptism. Or maybe God is asking you to come alongside someone as they walk out their faith journey. We all have a yes to say to Jesus. What is your next step?
