Bucket list: #21 Get Baptised again!

Categories Life

It feels a bit eerie writing this again…

Hey Kings and Queens!

It feels so weird writing this all up again, not because it’s the last day of March and I got baptised mid November last year, but because the last time I attempted to upload a post about my baptism, my website broke!

But I’m going to see how this goes, because I was looking at my bucket list recently and I realised that there are a few things that I’ve already managed to do since originally writing it!

Getting Baptised again is one of them.

For anyone who is a Christian you’re probably thinking “why did you get baptised again?”

The answer?

I’m not sure it was valid the first time around… I was 13 at the time and had (still has) a slight fear of water on my face. So when good ol’ Pastor Johnson asked 13-year-old me if I accept God as my personal saviour my answer was something along the lines of:

“wyhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassss”.

In all honesty I wasn’t thinking about my old life dying I was more concerned with water getting into my lungs and drowning me to death right there and then.

Fast forward to when I came to uni and “back-slided” in first year into a really, really dark place, I once again called on G-Man and ever since I was constantly called to get baptised so I went with it!

I got dunked in God’s holy juice and life has been fabulous ever since!

Well, apart from little pitfalls here and there, life has be going swimmingly and I have met some absolutely amazing people in church, who have almost become a sort of support group.

I feel as though I should talk about why Christians get baptised. Once someone is old enough to decide that they want to be a Christian, they say a personalised prayer which is them devoting their lives to God. (In a way the baptism is already done there because their heart is renewed) but most christians decide to get baptised in water this is a public show of them committing their lives to Christ and symbolically, they’re going into the water with their old life and coming out with the start of a new one!

I say start because being baptised doesn’t suddenly mean you’re detached from the all the sins of the world. I wish. I really do.

But now you’re all clued up on why I did it, I have a video of me getting baptised.

Even though I forgot to hold my nose I think this time I concentrated more on the ending of my “old life” than the possibility of sudden death and can confirm that this is it in terms of getting baptised!

 

 

P.S. HOW CUTE IS THE COUPLE THAT BAPTISED ME!!
