Today I close the door to my past
and step through to a new life.
No longer am I an unapologetic sinner and unbeliever.
I have closed the door to the old self
and let in the Holy spirit.
For I have Him in my new life,
striving towards a common and brighter future
Baptism is faith in action.
Through the remembrance of our baptism,
we shall be rejuvenated in faith.
We have made the conscious choice to follow Him
and we shall incorporate His Way in our daily lives.
Through Him, I am strengthened.
With Him, all is possible.
In Him, I trust
You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in baptism
and marked as Christ’s own forever.
Forever in sync with the Holy Spirit
and in tandem with Christ.
You shall trust in Him
as He trusts in you.
Perpetually as one until kingdom come
My past was made clean by my King.
He took the ultimate sacrifice
so that I could be liberated.
He broke the shackles
so that I could be emancipated.
He is my Saviour.
My future is with Him
He brought me under His wings in times of affliction.
He provided me respite when the going gets tough.
He raised me up when I am down.
He is the source of life
and shall be forever.
While we over-consume Nature’s resources,
we are gambling on the livelihood of our future generations.
When we overexploit His handiworks,
we cease to be living in Grace.
Without due conservation of God’s gifts,
we fail to declare the glory of His Kingdom.
We pray that we all shall be able to continue honouring the fruits of Heaven.
We’ve replaced our childlike innocence
with a self assured heart.
We’ve ignored the welcoming beacon of His salvation
in our pursuit of material comforts.
We’ve become comfortable living in a disillusioned
and unsustainable state;
We must continue to place our trust in Him
so that He can be our strength and shield.
