Not too many people know that I love country music but even for the people who may find it hard to listen to try this – It is a baptism song and it is a country gospel song! LOL However, I added the first video so you could see / read the words and its amazing meaning –
The word “baptism” is in Greek “baptisma” while “to baptise” is in Greek “baptizo”. It is obvious that this word has not really been translated but simply copied into the English language. In Greek “baptizo” means “to immerse, cause to be dipped, to submerge, to overwhelm”. To baptise something in water means to put it under the water. Therefore in the Biblical sense, to baptise a person in water literally means to put that person wholly under the water.
Water baptism for the Christian symbolises and appropriates our death, burial and resurrection with Christ. It means identification with Christ.
“Therefore we were buried with him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4).
