Mar 11, 2024: Live (Swim) in Your Baptism

The water of baptism reveals that God’s embrace is doing a new thing, fashioning and creating a new person out of the old. But like repentance, which is continuous, baptism is also a continual state of being, not an act done, left behind, and forgotten as a one-time act. . . . Like fish who cannot live apart from water, we are to swim always in the water of our baptism into Jesus. — Robert Webber, The Divine Embrace: Recovering the Passionate Spiritual Life (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 2006), 158.
