Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. – Acts 2:38 NIV
I was baptized when I was ten years old. I remember accepting Jesus, and asking many questions about salvation. Even as a child, I knew how important a role God would play in my life.
Baptism is a symbol goodbye to the old self and a welcoming to a new heart in Jesus. The Holy Spirit communicates with us in subtle ways. We don’t have to do anything special to deserve God’s love. It is part of our inheritance.
When we feel down, we can know that the feeling is only temporary. The Lord will make sure we don’t fall. Amen.
