Jesus can bring a new dimension to your life. He can take you from a world of black and white to a world rich with living color. He can fill your life with a peace that defies description. He can fill your life with purpose and with satisfaction that comes from helping others. He can fill your life with the assurance that comes from knowing that you belong to Him for all eternity. The Bible says in Acts 8:12, But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women (NIV).
Vines Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words says this about the word believe, “…to be persuaded of, hence, to place confidence in, to trust, signifies, reliance upon, not mere credence.” Believing the good news is not just something that happens between our ears, it is something that happens in our heart. There are people who have been partially connected to religion, but never fully connected to Jesus. To believe in Jesus is to be moved in our heart to obey the Lord’s teaching and be united with Him in the waters of baptism (Romans 6:3-7, Galatians 3:26-27). Baptism into Christ is the way you enter the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13, Acts 2:47). Following Jesus is the greatest adventure in this life that leads to eternal life.
