Baptism Devotional for Students (Free)

Here is a free Baptism Devotional for Students!

“I want to go swimming at church too!” my nephew exclaimed at lunch after a baptism service at church.  He was enamored by the whole thing. He loved the crowd cheering, the water splashing everywhere, and the ability to practice his swan dive in the middle of the church. He was intrigued by it, but we could tell he didn’t understand it. 

Baptism is a public declaration that you’ve trusted Jesus with your life and you are committed to following him forever.

This Baptism devotional for students uses the Book of Acts to explore 5 important questions teenagers should answer before they get baptized.

  1. What is baptism?
  2. Why do we get baptized?
  3. What does baptism mean?
  4. God wants to do something new in you.
  5. Baptism is just the beginning.

Baptism is so much more than a ceremony; it’s a celebration. When someone surrenders their life to Jesus, it’s a reason to throw a party. Your baptism is a powerful picture of the new life that God has given you. This is why Paul exclaims, “the old has gone and the new is here!” There aren’t a lot of exclamation marks in Scripture, but you will find one in this verse. You can hear the celebration in the Apostle’s voice as he writes these words.
