Its time to get Baptized

Posted: December 3, 2011 in Uncategorized

I was on my lunch break, and I went to see my friends get baptized(I was not going to get baptized) but I felt drawn to those waters. I could feel fire on my fingers every time I stretched my hand and prayed for the baptizee’s. I didn’t go prepared but fortunately my friend had extra clothes so I got in. The second I got in I felt a heat rush into my body and  it was quite soothing being that the water was cold lol. Finally it was my turn. FYI this was the first time I ever spoke to pastor we had emailed but never spoke face to face, and he told me three things that I was struggling with at the time, one of which was depression and he said these die today. I came out of those waters a new person. Something happened when I came out of the water. I was happy and filled with Joy. As a friend put it, in  salvation you die to the flesh and in baptism you bury the flesh. If your not saved, get saved and and if your not baptized get baptized you WILL see the difference, you are no longer bound to sin, the Bible isn’t just rules but instead life. That guy you see in the picture is not who you see today and I thank Jesus for all that he has done since. As for the depression it hasn’t been around since.
