Romans 6:4 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in a new way of life.

Do you remember the day you were baptist? Do you remember why you were baptist? One of the amazing things about being baptist is not only are you telling the world that you follow Christ but it is also a great reminder that you are a new person with Christ!!! Because the Holy Spirit lives within you, He has the ability to make changes to you that you would not be able to do by yourself!!!!! Mainly He prompts you and by His power we are able to turn our lives from a self focus to a Christ focused life. Stop now and think about how your life is self focused, list at least one way:

Now how is your life Christ focused:

Is there more that God is calling you to do? If so write down how the Holy Spirit is calling you to change:

mmm...great things to think on. i remember being baptised and silly as it may sound-my biggest reason was because i wanted to make sure i didn't go back, that is go back to a life without God.
i believe God is calling us to serve/shine as a light but it will be a different call for each of us. this is something near to my heart right now as my husband and i have been discussing His call for us in our lives-which we believe will mean growing our family through adoption. it's a process we are praying about it.
thanks for posting on this.
