“Repent and be baptized” (Part 2)
|The Apostle Peter preaching to the Gentiles. Image credit|
When he explained before the Jerusalem church, Peter said, “‘If then God gave the same gift to them as he gave to us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God’s way?’ When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, ‘Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life.’” (11:17-18. Emphasis mine.) Here we see that baptism does not really save us but it expresses our repentance. It is repentance that leads to life, not baptism.
Brothers and sisters, repent and be baptized.
