As we look towards Resurrection Sunday, let us not neglect Good Friday. Let us earnestly take the time to reflect on the death of our Savior. I am reminded of the words of the apostle Paul: “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Corinthians 2:2). This day is a solemn reminder of the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross for our sins.
What do we think about when it comes to baptizing a new believer into the Christian faith? I once heard a pastor talk about how, when they baptized people at his church, they also handed out engraved little tombstones to each new convert. While this is quite unusual, I believe it speaks volumes about the reality of the true Christian.
