My Baptism

I recently was in Maryland for a two-week vacation. During that time, one of my most cherished moments was my baptism. I accepted Jesus when I was a young teenager, and I asked, my friend, Matt if he would baptize me during one of our Facetime Bible studies. He agreed, and we both started praying and asking God to provide the right time for us to meet and for us to do the ceremony.

During the time of writing my part of the ceremony I reflected on my journey with Jesus. He has brought me through so much such as the loss of my mother, grandmother, dog, and my eating disorder. Even though I have faced so many challenges Jesus has taught me that according to 2 Corinthians 5:17, “…Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

The night of my baptism demonstrated to other believers that I accepted God’s gift of eternal life. When I went under the water that represented the death that Jesus took for our sins, and when I came out of the water that represented his resurrection.

My baptism was everything that I wanted it to be. I would like to thank the congregation of Grace Baptist Church for allowing us to use their facilities. Ken, Marttah and Curt for helping set up the event, and Matt Harris for baptizing me.

I hope this video blesses each one of you.
