A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn't prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger. The servant replied, 'despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong'. Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. While being taken to prison, he told the king again, God is Good & Perfect. Another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice. On the altar, the savages found out that the king didn't have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not "complete" to be offered to the gods. On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said; My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. But I have a question; If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison? His servant replied; My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger. Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong. Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that everything happens for a purpose. God is good and perfect!!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments, may the good Lord bless you and yours in many ways.... I am saved by the saving grace of God through baptism over ten years now.. I am trying so hard to live faithfully till Christ returns. I know that my labour shall not be in vain... 1 Corinthians 15:58

 

Baptism is not a necessity for salvation.

 

What about the thief on the cross or someone who, in their dying breath asks forgiveness and accepts Jesus as their personal saviour?

 

What we learn from the saved thief on the cross is that we are all sinners in need of a Saviour, and no matter the number of our sins and no matter if we,

or the world, think our sins are minor or extreme, it is never too late to repent and accept the free gift of salvation

 

Baptism is the symbol of what has already occurred in the heart and life of one who has trusted Christ as their Saviour  (Romans 6:3-5;Galatians 3:27;Colossians 2:12)

 

Salvation is as simple as this.

 

Admit your sinful state when compared to God's moral perfection.

This admission is called repentance toward God (Acts 20:21

)

Believe on Jesus Christ who died to pay your sin debt to God. He not only died as your substitute, He rose to life again as proof of God's satisfaction with His work. This is faith toward our Lord Jesus (Acts 20:21)

Completely finished - there is nothing else you need to do.

 

Salvation is a grace gift from God to all who will receive Christ.

 

Simply trust Him. When you do, God exchanges your sin for Christ's righteousness - forever!

Baptism is the commandment from Jesus Christ Himself (Mark 16:15-16; Matthew 28:19). It was implemented by the apostles on the day of Pentecost, those who believed were commanded to repent and be baptized for the remission of their sins (Acts 2:38). Everybody who believed the gospel were baptized (Acts 8:36-39; Acts 18:8-9; Acts 10:48; Acts 19:1-7), all these tell us that baptism is very important because the apostles taught and preached it as they were led by the Holy Spirit. The thief on the cross died before Christianity and Jesus Christ whilst on earth had the power to forgive sins (Mark 2:10) so the thief on the cross was not a Christian because Christianity started on the day of Pentecost. Thanks and may God bless you

The bible the Word of God tells us that that salvation is received by faith alone.

 

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 

Eph 2:9  not of works, lest anyone should boast.

 

Baptism is an important step of obedience after salvation but cannot and is not  a requirement for salvation.
