The Christian is bred by the Word and must be fed by it. William Gurnall
Matthew 5:11-12 "‘Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely
say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in
heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.’"

Job 23:11-12 "‘My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside.
12 "I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His
mouth more than my necessary food.’"

Reasons to Reflect on Baptism #10. Baptism Proclaims God's Only Way of Cleansing
from Sin. There can be no other way for sin to be cleansed, or God would have provided it,
and spared His only begotten Son from the torment of the cross. “‘Therefore let all the
house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus
whom you crucified.’ 37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said
to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Brethren, what shall we do?’ 38 Peter said to them,
‘Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of
your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’” (Acts 2:36-
38) http://gopcmodestortp.blogspot.com.

for the Word of righteousness, than by ten thousand arguments used against heretics and
false worship. John Collins
