Why do you want to be baptized?
I am so excited!!!!! I want to get baptized because I know that this is an outward proclamation of an inner faith that I have. I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, and I want to proclaim to the world that if He died to save sinners like me, and was continuously and fervently working in my heart all my life, then the same could happen for anyone else who just believe in Him. The Gospel is truth, and I want for those who have seen the struggles that I went through before, and my new life in Him now, to be encouraged by His never-ending love and seek to know the Truth.
What do you love about Jesus and why are you excited about this step in your life?
EVERYTHING! He is gentle, loving, caring, compassionate, patient, kind, and last but not least He died for me, and didn’t give up on me. I saw this quote the other day, that really made me chuckle, because I can totally relate to it: “Everybody thinks I’m crazy. They say, ‘You take the Jesus thing too seriously.’ Well I don’t know, but Christ took me pretty seriously when He died for me on the Cross.” That’s how I feel about this next step in my life; that if the Lord could send His only son down to Earth to help sinners reconnect with Him, and if I am saved by grace and not by my own works, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, then living for Him is all that matters.
