Many of us have the natural tendency to want control, but the need for control is rooted in pride, selfishness, and fear! You can have control or growth but you can’t have both. Proverbs 3:5-10 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." You need to let go to grow!
When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are transformed into a new person! Baptism is a public celebration that your old life is gone and your new life has begun! 2 Colossians 2:12 says, “For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.” You can’t say hello to the new you without saying goodbye to the old you, and baptism is commanded by Jesus to demonstrate your spiritual transformation.
