No Going Back

Description

There’s no going back to the pre-Christian days. We’re now on an irreversible journey that follows Jesus to the ultimate Promised Land!

"For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea." - 1 Corinthians 10:1

The book of Exodus comments on the actions of the Israelites after Passover. It says that after the Passover Lamb, God saved their lives and led them to freedom. Then they demonstrated their faith by walking through the sea. In a way, their obedience was similar to a baptism, just like the baptism of a new believer in Jesus Christ. God was saying to Israel—just as He was saying to the early church—Look, once you take that first step, there’s no going back! Once God brought the waters of the sea together again, there was no going back to slavery in Egypt. The Israelites had to walk forward on their journey of faith.

The same is true when we accept Christ. Once we are saved, we are to be baptized as a testimony of our faith in Christ. When we enter those waters, there’s no going back! There’s no going back to the pre-Christian days. Sure, we can try, but it will never be the same. We’re now on an irreversible journey that follows Jesus to the ultimate Promised Land! So don’t look back—keep looking forward to follow Jesus.
