Water Baptized In Jesus’ Name

This is Nick getting baptized in Jesus’ name.  He is the man I wrote about in the we have a dream post.  I dedicate this poem to the memory of Nick and to all who have ever had the wonderful experience of having their sins washed away in baptism in the wonderful, saving name of Jesus!

 

Water Baptized In Jesus’ Name

 

Repentant sinner

willing and obedient

surrendered and submitted

wholeheartedly following

Scriptures holy

sins are remitted

past buried

transgression all erased

cleansed, renewed

washed, sanctified, justified

Jesus’ name called

baptized

I am

baptized

called name, Jesus

justified, sanctified, washed

renewed, cleansed

erased, all transgressions

buried past

remitted are sins

Holy Scriptures

following wholeheartedly

submitted and surrendered

obedient and willing

sinner repentant.

 

1Peter 3:21  The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:  

1Corinthians 6:11  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.  

Luke 24:47  And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at
Jerusalem.
 

 

Acts 2:38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  

Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.  

Romans 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  

Colossians 2:12  Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.  

Acts 22:16  And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

  2. Ronda,

    Nick was actually baptized 2 years ago. When he came to us, he had cancer, and he was wanting to get right with God. He went in the hospital the day after his baptism. He received the Holy Ghost in the hospital and passed away 3 weeks after his baptism. We praise God that He was ready to meet Him!

  3. Praise the Lord ..Aplogy in Jesus Name ..I would like to ask a question..Does this Church keeps and uphold the ..HOLINESS ?

    Yes, we do believe in holy living.

    1Pe 1:15

    (AMP) But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.
