One Faith, One Baptism
Remember us this week as we as we observe communion. I'm preaching on Christ's Baptism, and I am struck by the connection between these two events. They are both a public testimony to the death and resurrection of Jesus. They have elements that represent life and death. Baptism represents our one-time incorporation into Christ's body. Communion represents our ongoing reliance on his body and his blood to sustain us spiritually.
