Scripture: 1 Peter 3:21
“and this water symbolises baptism that now saves you also not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience towards God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Jesus allowed the government of the day to capture Him, and by the conviction of the Jewish leaders, to be crucified. This was a horrible death, but He did it for your resurrection.
There is no place in your life to be selfish about it. You didn’t deserve it, and you didn’t earn it. It was only because of a Son’s commitment to His Father’s decree that you are saved.
His death and your baptism into His death assured your deliverance and resurrection. Meaning you are supposed to be dead. There is no place for an unholy trinity in you.
Because of Father’s grace, you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a Holy Nation belonging to God. That must make you humble enough to know there are no we in this calculation.
If that is the case, repent and accept His grace and resurrection as a real entity in your life and live as a chosen people, not in selfish bedevilment. But as a resurrected person filled with grace and mercy.
Father, Your Son has given me resurrection life through my baptism. I have been cleansed and made whole therefore help me be worthy of that act.
I repent of my selfish ways.
I repent of the unholy trinity living in me and wish to walk in mercy than selfish error.
Fill me with your Trinity in Jesus Name.
Show me how to live as a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to you.
Be my light in the darkness. From this day forward I declare your Sovereignty in my life, my thoughts and my actions.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
