Jeslyn’s Baptism & Testimony of His Saving Grace

Jeslyns baptism 2Since I was a little child I have been taught right from wrong. My parents would sit me down when I had sinned and explain to me that what I had done was an offense against God. All my life I knew there was a God up there in the Heavens somewhere watching every little thing I did, and keeping tabs on it as well.  I knew I needed grace, but did not understand what it cost. Looking back, I see that while I wanted grace, I didn’t hate my sin or love God more than my desire to have my own way.

It was not until recently that God has allowed me to understand grace and faith, as well as repentance and forgiveness. The forgiveness and grace I so desperately needed cost Jesus everything. He left heaven, was born as a man and lived a perfect life, and then died for my sins.  Grace and forgiveness are found only in Jesus Christ.  Acts 4:12 says, “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven, by which we must be saved.”  I can never be good enough to get to heaven.  If I could, then Jesus died for nothing.  I thank God for loving me and saving me.  Even the faith I have is a gift from Him. 

Now I see that God is not just up there to keep track of every sin I commit; He also loves us and cares for our needs. Once I realized that everything fell into place; I understood why we sing to God and why we read our jeslyns baptism 1Bible. We read our Bible to learn more about God and how to walk in His ways, and how much we have to praise Him for. I don’t know what God’s plan for my life is yet, but I know that He will be with me and promises to work all things for my good. Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am you God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

I want to be baptized today because I believe that Jesus died for my sins, was buried, and raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. It is my desire to obey and follow Him.
