Christians my 12 year old will be baptized by the end of this month?
What would you tell her is the most important thing to fully understand before she gets baptized? I hope that she gets that the baptism is only the BEGINNING of a journey that follows Jesus.
Answer by Matthew
It’s important that she understands this:
Water baptism cannot and will not save you of your sins. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is given freely when you believe in Jesus alone for salvation. =)
“Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.”
Jesus is God and the only way into heaven. Please pray a sincere prayer with all of your heart admitting to Jesus you are a sinner. Have full faith that His blood pays off all of your sins and accept His gift of everlasting life. I pray that God blesses you with peace. Amen.
