Recently our church had a beautiful baptismal service where, we witnessed a young man demonstrate his desire to be closer to the Lord. When he was baptized in Jesus Name, some great blessings were put into action. First, all his sins were washed away. Second, he received the promise of Acts 2:38b that he shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and speak with tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.
Third, he became a great witness for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Baptism is the right thing to do in order to head in the right direction and to receive eternal life.
