A few weeks ago I shared A little about my story of coming to Christ, (check out my last post!) and this last Sunday I was baptized. It was the most joyful day of my life. My younger brother and I had made the decision to get baptized a few weeks prior. Upon approaching the day, we were both so excited and nervous that we just couldn’t wait for the day to come!
We got to church that Sunday morning and the presence of the room was full of joy and peace. Bright and smiling faces all came together to take the next step in their faith. We got together in groups with pastors and prayed together. Prayer is so powerful and joy flooded the room.
We then lined up for the big moment. My feet hit the water, and I felt so overwhelmed by God’s presence that I couldn’t help but smile ear to ear. The pastor then said, “I baptize you in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit,” and it happened. The old is gone the new has come. I am MADE NEW. This was hands down the best moment of my life. The moment where I proclaimed to the world that it’s Christ I am living for. After I was baptized I walked off and turned around to watch my nine year old brother get baptized. It was such an emotional experience for me, and I could not be more proud of him. To experience this with him was so amazing. He came out of the water, lifted His hands to heaven and jumped for joy. God is good! Kids are the best.
Here’s a couple of verses I’ll leave you with:
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will recieve the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Bless you all! You are loved!
