Did you ever wonder why?

Most of us, all of us post our life, beliefs, feelings as I do! Aquatic or Water my first thoughts here. Thanks to Weekly Prompts for the inspiration!

***********************************

Did you ever wonder why God chose water for the Sacrament of Baptism?  Baptism washes away original sin, the sin we all inherited from Adam and Eve.   Water is the outward sign necessary in which the Sacrament washes away this deadly sin.

Continue to read a Bible commentary from the book of Romans:
Romans 6:23 according to Haydock's commentary, "For the wages, which the tyrant sin gives to his soldiers and slaves, is eternal death; but the wages, the pay, the reward, which God gives to those that fight under him, is everlasting life; which, though a reward of our past labours, as it is often called in the Scriptures, is still a grace, or free gift; because if our works are good, or deserve a reward in heaven, it is God's grace that makes them deserve it.  For, as St. Augustine says, when God crowns our works, he crowns his own gifts."  (Witham)

Yes, without water we are dead in more ways than one.
