Baptismal Pattern of Life

“The Christian life is going to be a constantly deepening experience of the baptismal pattern, whereby first we feel God bringing us down into death–darkness, pain, a blank wall, the end of everything–and then we find God bringing us up again into a new phase of resurrection life, with our hope in him made stronger than before (2 Cor. 1:8-10).” -J.I. Packer in The Glory of the Atonement
