We Do Not Compare Our Life to Christ’s but Find Ours in His

Of course, baptism calls forth our commitment to die daily to self and to live to God in Christ, but it can only do that because it comes to us from God alone, in Christ alone, by grace alone.  As God’s sovereign pledge, baptism is the inexhaustible spring to which we return every day, not to compare our life with Christ’s but to find our life in Christ.
