Enter as a New Creation

Sunday March 11th, 1 Corinthians 10: 1 For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. 2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 3 They all ate the same spiritual food 4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert. Baptism is not fire insurance, it is a calling and a grafting into body of Christ. The generation that crossed through wilderness, including Moses, did not enter the promise land. What entered was a new creation. When we enter the promise land, it too is a new creation, made new in Christ. As the baptized children of God, we may know where we are going, but the only guarantee about the journey is that we are never alone.
