No Better DayPosted: April 8, 2009
Is there a better day to get baptized than on Easter Sunday? I don’t think so!
On the same day that we celebrate the victorious resurrection of Jesus, we get to celebrate new life in Christ with some of our Awaken family! I absolutely cannot wait for Sunday morning to get here!
It’s not too late to “jump in” for baptism. Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let us know of your interest.
For all those outside of Columbia and outside of Awaken Church, pray for us and for those who will be baptized Sunday. Pray that their friends and family who come to celebrate with them will hear the truth of Jesus clearly. Pray that God uses the stories of those being baptized to speak into people’s lives and to lead people to trust and worship Jesus. Pray that this would be an “ebenezer moment” for those who are baptized – one they will never forget because of the power and meaning of the moment.
A year ago, I wrote on my blog that I hated not having anything to do last Easter and promised to have more to do this Easter. Glory to God…not only do I have a sermon to preach and a “brand-new-still-in-the-womb” baby church to worship with, but we have new converts to baptize! Wow!
If you’re in the Columbia area and haven’t decided about attending an Easter service, come join us! We meet at Polo Road Elementary School (1250 Polo Road, Columbia, 29223) at 10:30a. Would love to have you!
No better day than Easter!
