Rom 6:3 Or are you ignorant that whoever are baptized into Christ Jesus, are baptized into His death?
Biblical baptism is unlike our Western act of immersing someone, or sprinkling with water.
The old process of transforming a cucumber into a pickle was called baptism. This is the true baptism of the Bible.
The cucumber was “baptized” INTO a vinegar solution. The vinegar worked back THROUGH the cucumber to “pickle “or alter it. The cucumber was converted into something that it was not. When a person accepts Jesus Christ, he becomes baptized into Christ. The arriving Holy Spirit immerses, or “pickles” the person INTO everything who Christ is, and all that He went through.
When you get rid of the old man there is no greater gravitational attraction than to plunge headfirst into the extraordinary Person of Jesus Christ and be pickled into every fiber of His DNA, splendor, power and perfection.
Any aversion to this means that you are more in love with your old man than Jesus.
