Both my hottie husband and I were baptized when we were infants. Hottie husband was raised Catholic...they believe in baptizing as an infant. The Catholic reasoning (as I understand it) behind infant baptism comes from the belief that all who depart this life without baptism, be it of water, or blood, or desire, are perpetually excluded from the vision of God.
I was baptized in the Presbyterian Church. Being baptized as an infant in the Presbyterian Church my parents were saying that they would supply the act of faith for me until a time when I can profess mature Christian faith on my own.
You may be wondering why my hottie husband and I are going to be baptized this Sunday when I just shared with you that both of us have already been baptized when we were infants! Let me share with you why...
As you know from previous posts, I just recently accepted Jesus Christ into my heart (hottie husband accepted Jesus into his heart a long time ago)! I have asked him to show me the way to a more Christ like life. I have asked his forgiveness for all my sins.
I found this verse in Romans 6 verses 3-4:
This is the meaning of baptism according to Paul.
• Am I giving up my tendency to get defensive and my need to be right?
When I think of walking “in newness of life” I ask myself:
• Am I aware of my strengths and more ready to use them to serve as God guides me?
Paul said about our freedom to get on with our newness of life, “Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive before God. That energy is God's energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure” (Philippians 2:13).
Baptism means that God’s energy is working deep within us. What a beautiful ceremony!! I thank God for giving my hottie husband and I this new life in Jesus Christ!!
