An appeal to God for a good conscience …

And a voice came from heaven: You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” Mark 1
Une voix retentit alors du ciel: Tu es mon Fils bien-aimé, tu fais toute ma joie. Marc 1
Imagine being saved through water, as with those eight persons of Noah’s family. They were a foreshadow, an indication of what was to come in the new covenant of baptism in Christ, the beloved in whom God is well pleased. Our baptism, allows for salvation though water and welcomes us into the new covenant in order that we too may share in the Lord’s table, to be one in Jesus. Our baptism invites and encourages us to discover and follow the path set out by Jesus. 1 Peter says, “baptism is as an appeal to God for a good conscience”. That is to earnestly seek a sense of right and wrong; to discern the inner voice of God which speaks to values, principles, and belief.
Recommit this Sunday and appeal to God by seeking what baptism can mean during this time of Lent; a time to seek the will of God in good conscience by allowing the Holy Spirit to begin prioritizing in your lives and in your service to God.
