In Acts 8:36, we find a man asking, “What doth hinder me to be baptized?” Here was a man who wanted to be baptized...and he was asking, “What’s stopping me?” You know, a lot of people today will ask, “Why must I, or why should I be baptized?” But the Ethiopian simply said, “What’s hindering me?” Why would anyone be hindered from being baptized? What does the Bible say?
A thought found in Philippians 3:13,14 offers a contrast in living -- paying the cost of what it takes to gain eternal life or paying the cost of physical living and losing our soul. What does the Bible say about, the high cost of low living?
In Psalm 19:7-9, we find: "The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple." Volumes could be written on the entire passage, but in regard to the statement found in verse 7, I think the world needs to learn that message more than any other.

The Bible tells us about a kingdom that cannot be destroyed. In fact, the Old Testament tells us about several kingdoms that would rise and fall throughout history...but were defeated by a kingdom that can never be moved.
