A new year is upon us. In a matter of hours, 2013 will be but a thing of the past and that means those new year resolutions are all set to put into practice. But if you’re still pondering on what changes you’d like to see this coming year, perhaps the next story may inspire you. It’s about a woman who has made the decision to deepen her walk with Christ in 2014. Last week, her one significant step in this journey was to be baptized.
“The purpose that we are here is to accomplish what the Scriptures to all nations, make disciples and baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. So, one of the sisters gave her life to the Lord and she felt that this day she wanted to be baptized to accomplish what the Lord has ordered to do according to the Scriptures”.
The time for change is now, says Evangelist Tun.
Evangelist Honorio Tun: “I would encourage the whole world that it’s time to give our lives to the Lord, especially that we are living in a time of corruption. It is the only way to be baptized according to the Scriptures because that’s what the Lord is asking us to do, being baptized is to be a new creature. That’s what the Bible says that when a person gives his life to the Lord and is baptized, he is living a new life in Jesus Christ. There is no special day. Any time you feel in your heart that you give your heart to the Lord and you feel that you want to be baptized, then, that’s the time”.
