Getting Baptized

Went to a friend’s festive baptism this afternoon. Before and after the service, everyone was having pictures taken with those who were getting baptized (in black robes). It is hard not to share in the joy even if you do not know them.

There were many touching moments. There was enough time only for two of them to speak, but all who were baptized wrote a paragraph on their experiences. A mother was brought to church by her daughter. Several spoke of how they were bitter and lost, but found peace and hope in faith. A man resisted going to church for more than 10 years; now that he has found faith, cannot wait to bring his wife and daughters to God. Many of our friends are taking beginner’s classes and will be baptized soon.

God is real and He can do wonders. Each person has his or her own sufferings, and each person who finds faith is a miracle. In the face of such life-changing moments, everything else suddenly becomes un-important. What can be more important than really saving lives?

I believe that one can find heaven on earth - when God becomes the center of his/her life. Ann

Yes, we can have heaven in our hearts when we have God. That's what gives us the strength to live differently from what the world expects.
