Going Public: A 7-Day Study About Baptism and Why It Matters

Day 1 of 7 • This day’s reading


What Changes When You Go Public?

The Big Idea: Saying Jesus is Lord of your life changes everything.

Baptism is going public in saying that Jesus is Lord of your life.

When you asked God for help, healing, and salvation, you claimed the promise that He will never let you down. God stands by His promise to save you, change you, and stay with you. 

God’s promise applies, no matter who you are or what you’ve done. Saying yes to Jesus is accepting the salvation He freely gives.

Being saved by Jesus means you’ve been rescued. No more trying to live up to someone’s expectations, no more hiding in shame, no more attempts to fix your own life. God rescues you from all of that.

Going public is about showing on the outside how God is changing you on the inside.

Every time God makes a difference in your life, it deserves a celebration. He is only getting started, and the best is yet to come.


What is one area of your life in which you’re excited to see Jesus bring change?
