I went to a baptism yesterday. A few friends of mine were taking the plunge, one of them actually surprised me because I didn't know he was being baptized that day. He then surprised me again as he was about to get dunked, he said something funny, but also incredibly profound. "Thanks for coming out everyone! I thought today would be a beautiful day to die."
That really hit me. That's what baptism is, being dead to your old self and then being alive in Christ. So that is my prayer for him, that he would truly die to his old self and be raised in Christ. God bless you Darce.
