“Mek di baptayz we una baptayz sev una.”—PITA IN FƆS LƐTA 3:​21, NW.

SIŊ DƐN: 52, 41

1, 2. (a) Aw sɔm mama ɛn papa dɛn kin fil we dɛn pikin want fɔ baptayz? (b) Wetin mek dɛn kin aks di wan dɛn we want fɔ baptayz if dɛn dɔn gi dɛn layf to Jiova? (Luk di pikchɔ nia dis atikul in taytul.)

MARIA in mama ɛn papa bin de wach we dɛn gyal pikin bin tinap wit ɔda pipul dɛn we bin want fɔ baptayz. Di brɔda we bin de gi di tɔk bin aks tu kwɛstyɔn dɛn. Maria bin ansa lawd ɛn klia wan. Jɔs afta dat, i bin baptayz.

2 Maria in mama ɛn papa bin rili gladi fɔ we dɛn pikin dɔn gi in layf to Jiova ɛn baptayz. Bɔt bifo dis tɛm, Maria in mama bin de wɔri smɔl. I bin de aks insɛf se: ‘Maria nɔ tu smɔl fɔ baptayz?

(Ɛkliziastis 5:​5) Infakt, di tin we wi kin disayd fɔ du we impɔtant pas ɔl na fɔ gi wi layf to Jiova ɛn  baptayz.—Luk di bɔks we gɛt di taytul “Yu Dɔn Gi Yu Layf to Jiova?”

3, 4. (a) Aw di apɔsul Pita tich wi se baptizim na tin we rili impɔtant? (b) Wetin mek Pita kɔmpia baptizim to di bil we Noa bil di ak? (Luk di pikchɔ nia dis atikul in taytul.)

3 Di apɔsul Pita bin kɔmpia baptizim to di ak we Noa bin bil. I bin tɔk se: “Di baptayz we wi de baptayz” we fiba di ak we Noa bin bil de “sev wi.” (Rid Pita In Fɔs Lɛta 3:​20, 21, NW.) Di ak bin mek ɔlman no se Noa bin rili want fɔ du wetin Gɔd want wit ɔl in at. Noa bin du di wok we Jiova bin gi am fɔ du fetful wan. Bikɔs Noa bin gɛt fet pan Gɔd, dat bin mek Jiova sev in ɛn in famili di tɛm we da Ebi Ebi Ren bin kam. Wetin Pita bin de tray fɔ tich wi?

4 We pipul dɛn bin de si di ak, dɛn bin no se Noa bin gɛt fet pan Gɔd. Semweso, we pipul dɛn de si pɔsin de baptayz, dɛn de no se i dɔn gi in layf to Gɔd bikɔs i gɛt fet pan Krays we bin dɔn gɛt layf bak. Lɛk Noa, di wan dɛn we de baptayz de obe Gɔd ɛn dɛn de du di wok we i dɔn gi dɛn fɔ du. Ɛn jɔs lɛk aw Jiova bin sev Noa di tɛm we da Ebi Ebi Ren bin kam, na so bak i go sev in savant dɛn we dɔn baptayz ɛn we nɔ de kɔmɔt biɛn am di tɛm we i go dɔnawe wit dis wikɛd wɔl. (Mak 13:​10; Rɛvɛleshɔn 7:​9, 10) Fɔ tru, i rili impɔtant fɔ mek wi gi wi layf to Jiova ɛn baptayz. Infakt, if sɔmbɔdi de westɛm fɔ baptayz, dat go mek i lɔs di chans fɔ gɛt layf we go de sote go.

6 Di fɔs pɔsin we wi lan bɔt na di Baybul we bin de baptayz pipul dɛn na Jɔn. (Matyu 3:​1-6) Wetin mek pipul dɛn bin de go to am fɔ mek i baptayz dɛn? Dɛn bin de du dat fɔ sho se dɛn dɔn ripɛnt, we min se, dɛn gri se dɛn nɔ bin de obe di Lɔ we Gɔd bin gi Mozis ɛn dɛn rili fil sɔri fɔ dat. Bɔt di baptizim we Jɔn du we bin impɔtant pas ɔl bin gɛt difrɛn minin. Jɔn bin gɛt big big ɔnɔ fɔ baptayz Jizɔs, we na Gɔd in pafɛkt Pikin. (Matyu 3:​13-17) Jizɔs nɔ bin ɛva sin. So i nɔ bin nid fɔ ripɛnt. (Pita In Fɔs Lɛta 2:​22) So wetin mek Jizɔs bin baptayz? I bin baptayz fɔ sho se i rɛdi fɔ yuz in layf fɔ du wetin Gɔd want.—Di Ibru Pipul Dɛn 10:​7.

7 Afta we Jizɔs bin dɔn bigin fɔ prich, in disaypul dɛn bin bigin fɔ baptayz ɔda pipul dɛn. (Jɔn 3:​22; 4:​1, 2) Dɛn pipul dɛn bak bin baptayz bikɔs dɛnsɛf dɔn ripɛnt. Bɔt we Jizɔs day ɛn gɛt layf bak, di wan dɛn we bin want fɔ bi in disaypul bin nid fɔ baptayz fɔ difrɛn rizin.

8 Insay di ia 33, jɔs afta we Jizɔs gɛt layf bak, i bin tɔk to lɛk 500 man, uman, ɛn sɔntɛm pikin dɛn. I mɔs bi se na dis tɛm ya i bin tɔk se: “Una go ɔlɔbɔt na di wɔl ɛn mek di pipul dɛn bi mi lanin bɔy dɛn; una baptayz dɛn wit di pawa we Papa Gɔd ɛn in Pikin ɛn in Spirit gi una. Una lan dɛn fɔ du ɔl wetin a dɔn tɛl una.” (Matyu 28:​19, 20; Fɔs Lɛta Fɔ Kɔrint 15:​6) Jizɔs bin tɛl di wan dɛn we de fala am fɔ mek disaypul dɛn. Ɛnibɔdi we want fɔ bi in disaypul, fɔ baptayz. (Matyu 11:​29, 30) Fɔ sav Gɔd di we we i want, pɔsin nid fɔ gri se na Jizɔs, Gɔd de yuz fɔ du wetin I want. Dɔn da pɔsin de go baptayz di we aw Gɔd want. Di Baybul gɛt bɔku tin dɛn fɔ pruv se Jizɔs in fɔstɛm disaypul dɛn bin no aw impɔtant i bi fɔ baptayz. Dɛn nɔ bin tink se dɛn fɔ wet ɛn baptayz leta.—Di Apɔsul Dɛn Wok [Akt] 2:​41; 9:​18; 16:​14, 15, 32, 33.

Wan man we bin kɔmɔt na Itiopia we bin dɔn disayd fɔ wɔship lɛk aw di Ju pipul dɛn de wɔship, bin de go bak na in kɔntri we i dɔn fɔ wɔship na di tɛmpul na Jerusɛlɛm.
