ARAPAL, Philippines (BNc) — Filipino worker Salvador Cariaga posted a number of baptism photos Jan. 8, some of which appear to be results of contacts through disaster relief.

One picture particularly stood out, that of a man being baptized in the ocean as the sun dips into the horizon.

Not every baptism makes a pretty photo. But, when the person responds in faith and repentance, every single one is a scene of spiritual beauty as God cleanses from sin by the blood of Christ.

For those who have yet to experience such cleansing, we recommend this short study.

No link is provided for the photo, posted on Facebook, where links are not generally acessible. It was, however, a “public” posting.
