Who’s taking the plunge?

Who’s taking the plunge?

 

As a follow up to all the decisions to follow Jesus this past weekend at the Ramona Bowl, we’ll be having a special time for baptisms. Of course, at Community, we do baptisms any weekend, but this weekend is special.

We’ll have shorts, t-shirts and towels ready! If you want to follow Jesus, this is what He told us to do. So…let’s jump in!

At the end of the message we’ll be asking if anyone is ready to take the plunge, like the Ethiopian eunuch in the following verses. Read these verses and then ask yourself, “Why not me too?”

The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.

As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” The eunuch answered, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.” (Acts 8:34-37 NIV)
