Water baptism technically is when a believer is immersed in water in a public confession of his/her faith in Jesus Christ. Water baptism is an act of obedience to His commands. Water baptism is a physical show of what spiritually happens in a person’s life when he or she believes in Jesus. The Bible states: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” II Corinthians 5:17. Water Baptism is an act of obedience and an outward symbol of the internal change after accepting Jesus.

Mark Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of Facebook. “Facebook has two ‘newsfeeds,’ a personal one unique to your Facebook home page, and a corporate one, available for reviewing by all of your ‘friends’.

Our minds have a central place in our spiritual lives. Romans 12: 2 teaches that we need to be transformed by the renewing of our minds and that without this renewal we cannot know God’s will. Without the knowledge of God’s will, we won’t be able to live lives that are pleasing to God. Moreover, we are to love God with our minds, because He created us as rational beings in His own image and likeness and intellectual growth is an integral part of spiritual growth. That is what we learn from the life of our Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 2:46-47 & 52) and the lives of Daniel and his friends (Daniel 1:4 & 17). Even in the Christian life it is very critical, because it is a discipline that strengthens the mind and enriches the soul. Strengthening the mind is very important, because we are to serve the Lord, our God with all our hearts, with all our souls and with all our minds.
