“It is a sweet sign ofa humble and broken heart,when the child of God iswilling to obey a commandwhich is not essential to his salvation,which is not forced upon himby a selfish fear of condemnation,but is a simple act of obedienceand of communion with his Master.”— C.H. Spurgeon

I read this quote this morning and just had to share it with you.
I was reading a commentary on Acts 16, wanting to study more about Lydia’s conversion, and there is an excerpt from C.H Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening devotional.
Spurgeon put this so much better than I ever could, as to why I am getting baptized. There are so many more implications for this “simple act of obedience and of communion with his Master.”
What does this look like for you? Are you obeying the commands of God out of fear of condemnation, or out of obedience and longing for communion with our great Heavenly Father?
