This baptismal meditation was given at King’s Cross Church on November 6, AD 2022.
In this sacrament of baptism God covenantally binds Himself to us and we to Him.
Here this morning God is claiming these children as His, marking them with the waters of baptism that are a sign and seal of the inner cleansing work of His Spirit. God is promising Himself to them, to be what He is already to their parents and siblings, a good and faithful Father.
Likewise, upon baptism these children are now bound to God, to live in accordance with His Word, to walk in step with His Spirit, to maintain allegiance to Him and His kingdom all the days of their lives.
And the magnificent thing about these covenant obligations is that it is all of grace. For it is God who works in us, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. And He promises never to depart. Amen.
