Beloved friends of Kerith, brothers and sisters in Christ, Greetings in the wonderful name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am delighted to meet all of you in this new month. The reality around us is constantly changing. I'm sure many of us developed the habit of frequently washing our hands after the COVID-19 outbreak. These Corona times have taught us all that washing our hands frequently not only keeps our hands clean but also protects us from viruses to some extent. And it's worth noting that water is the most significant factor in sanitation. In our daily lives, water is very essential for our external sanitation, and likewise, in our spiritual life, living water is very essential for internal sanctification. We will only use a clean vessel on a regular basis. In the same way, even in our lives, the vessel that our Heavenly Father intends to use should always be kept clean. And baptism serves as a sure sign that one has been cleansed. The first Passover, which was observed during Israel's deliverance and salvation from slavery in Egypt and the hands of their enemy Pharaoh, foreshadowed 'Holy communion'. Similarly, crossing of the Red Sea symbolises 'Baptism', receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai symbolises 'the Word of God', and the tabernacle symbolises 'the Church'. So, in this month's issue of kerith, under the light of the word of God, we'll be learning the truth about -, which are the other aspects of the fundamental teachings (basic biblical truth). Why do we need to be baptised? What does it truly mean? What are the responsibilities of the baptised people? May the Lord help each of us in discovering the answers to all of these vital questions this month. kindly share with your friends and encourage them to read as well.
