Making an Agreement
Summary: We are invited to make an agreement with God. We may be amazed that the Almighty God would desire to make an agreement of any sort, but he has. He has opened up an offer of salvation, through Jesus, for those who will come to him in faith. That offer is accepted through the ceremony of baptism. In baptism, we are buried with Christ in his death, and we thereby have the promise of being raised from the dead at the time of the great resurrection.
