True immersion tears down the walls of religion and produces complete and total transformation in the heart and mind of the believer. The Bible declares in 1 Sam. 16: 7 “Man looks at the outward appearance, but The Lord looks at the heart”. Everything starts with the heart. Your heart consists of your mind, your will, and your emotions and if any of those things are not completely given over to God, you cannot be completely immersed in Him. If the believer is unable to give himself over fully to God, then flesh is still on the throne. God does not share. God is looking for a people who will be completely sold out to Him!
God is concerned about the matters of your heart. That’s why the Bible declares in Romans 12:2, that we are to renew our minds DAILY. We have to allow God to renew our thinking so we can become consumed in Him. God never intended to save the soul that we would remain the same. His purpose was always to transform us from the inside out. Religion teaches us behavior modification whereas immersion is about true transformation. The external actions of a person should be a reflection what is happening on the inside.
Are you fully immersed in the things of God yet? What area of your heart does God have His finger on? Are you willing to give it over to him? What are you willing to sacrifice to be fully submerged in God? God is looking for a people who is will to go all in no matter the cost.
I pray that you would allow God to immerse Himself in your heart. Allow the work of His Word to expose everything in you that is not like Him. I pray that you would surrender everything so that in return you give yourself over to him completely. He is worth it all. Dive into the deep end and get lost in Him.
