Before I start sharing stories, I feel like I need to give you all some back story first. I think its easier to understand the importance of the stories & their significance if you understand where I started in my faith.
INSANE (or at least I thought so in the beginning)…..things quickly changed!
The act of baptism is an act of obedience. It a public demonstration of your commitment to Jesus & to His church. It is the washing away of sins & the start of a new life in Jesus Christ……Dead to Sin, Alive to God.
Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized in Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in the newness of life.
Romans 6:3-5 (ESV)
I believe God was calling us to this church because of His love for us! I believe that He wanted me to understand what it means to be a Christian & what it feels like to be in real relationship with Him. As I continue to grow & walk in my faith, I am starting to understand that more & more.
So, now that you all have the full back story…I will be sharing a few more stories with you throughout the rest of the month! Stay tuned!!
