The small 6″ x 2.5″ folded flyer that I found in Mrs. Baugh’s Bible is so filled with inspiring biblical answers. There are a total of 11 sections in this tiny flyer. This posting will focus on Part 11 – Advice to Christians.

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me..

Romans XII

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Hebrews V, 12-14

12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

I Corinthians XVI, 2

On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.

1 Peter IV, 8-11

8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” 9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

II Peter I

Acts XX, 32

“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Revelation II, 10

Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Revelations XXII: 14,18,19

14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add[b] to him the plagues that are written in this book;

19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book[b] of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Mrs. Baugh’s Bible — Treasure 5 — Bible Answers — Part 5

Continuing with the Bible Answers found in Mrs. Baugh’s Bible.  This section of the Bible Answers flyer speaks to the topic of BAPTISM.

How many baptisms are there?

Ephesians IV, 4-5

4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;


 How are we baptised?

  Romans vi,4.

4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.


When are we Christ’s friends?

John xv, 14.

14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.


matthew xxviii, 19-20.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.


mark xvi,15-16.

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.


john iii, 1-23.

3 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”

10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11 Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.[a]14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but[b] have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

John the Baptist Exalts Christ

22 After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized. 23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.


acts ii,38

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.


acts 8:36-39

36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”

37 Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.”

And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”

38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. 39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.


acts xxii,16.

16 And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’


romans vi, 3-4.

3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.


1 corinthians xii,13

13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.


galatians iii,27.

27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.


colossians II,12.

12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.


i peter iii:20-21.

20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. 21 There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,


A Formula for JOY

I have vivid memories as a 9 year old girl of my first lesson on experiencing the JOY that comes from knowing Jesus Christ. On this particular Sunday morning, my Sunday School teacher told us that we could always find JOY in our lives if we would follow a very simple formula. Her words still echo in my heart –

 Always put Jesus first

Always put Others second

Always put Yourself last.

Even after 51 years the first thing I think of when I hear the word JOY is this early lesson of my youth.

Although this formula may sound very simple, life experiences have taught that it is not an easy formula to keep. It does not come naturally to put others before ourselves. Each of us inevitably desires to be put first by others. To have others do things our way or listen to our opinion or our feelings is sometimes extremely important or so we believe. We want others to acknowledge when we hurt, or when we are in need of some sort of support, and many times we might even get upset or angry if we are not placed before others in our lives. We often hear or say ourselves, either in word, tone or deed, “What’s in it for me?”

Yet, when we look at the example that Jesus set for us, we do not find a single time in his life that Jesus put himself first. Following God the Father was always the first priority in the life of Jesus. Spending time with God and fulfilling God’s purpose in His life was Jesus’ life purpose. He always took time to be alone with His Father. Loving and helping other people was always Jesus’ priority. Even as he hung dying on the Cross, He prayed for those who persecuted Him asking God to forgive them. He was willing to give His life so that you and I can receive the grace of God through his death and gain eternal life with the Father.

Oh, if we could keep these priorities aligned each and every moment of each and every day, how blessed we would be to have every moment of life be JOY-filled. For it is in these moments, when our hearts are focused first on Jesus, acknowledging that He is the sovereign Lord and asking Him to give us His heart of love and service to others, that we are able to focus on giving and helping others. It is then that we can experience the greatest JOY of life as we allow His Holy Spirit to work in and through us.

What a wonderful truth of life. Even more amazing is the fact that we can experience this JOY in the midst of the most difficult times in our lives.

For it is when we turn our eyes to Jesus that we receive an eternal perspective of life. It is then that the trials of the moment, that may seem so large and overwhelming, seem to vanish in light of God’s eternal promise to us. It is then, although tears of sorrow may roll from our eyes, JOY will resonates in our heart as the Holy Spirit fills us with His presence. It is then that we can truly experience worship of our Lord. It is then that we can experience His Holy Spirit flowing through us on His way to bless another. It is then that we are filled with a JOY that is known only when Jesus is the source. It is then that we know we are following a simple order of life – Jesus, Others, Yourself – that always results in JOY in our moments of life.

Our hearts ache, but we always have joy. We are poor, but we give spiritual riches to others. We own nothing, and yet we have everything.

2 Corinthians 6:10
