Baptism is a promise to God. A simple decision to give up one world for another. This world is sensual, attractive, and passing. Life in this world consists of nothing but empty vanity that in the end only leaves you with memories of the past – at most. The other world is Heavenly and eternal – Life in Christ. It is True Life, that is blissful and joyous and in the end it brings only more joy and peace and Eternal Life in Heaven. The promise is to COMPLETELY give up the former life in this earthly, sensual world, and to become a servant of God in the Heavenly. “Baptism – not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God” – 1 Peter 3:21
