What Happens When You go Public?
Read: Romans 10:9-13
The Big Idea: Saying Jesus is Lord of your life changes everything.
Baptism is going public in saying that Jesus is Lord of your life.
When you asked God for help, for healing, and for salvation, you claimed the promise that He will never let you down. God stands by His promise to save you, change you, stay with you, and give you new life with new purpose.
God’s promise applies, no matter who you are or what you’ve done. Saying yes to Jesus is accepting the gift of salvation and the invitation to follow Him.
Being saved by Jesus means you’ve been rescued. No more trying to live up to someone’s expectation, no more hiding in shame, no more attempts to fix your own life. God rescues you from all of that.
Going public is about showing on the outside how God is changing you on the inside.
Every time God makes a difference in your life, it deserves a celebration! He is only getting started with you, and the best is yet to come!
What is one area of your life in which you’re excited to see Jesus bring change?
