10 Sep 06. Sunday. It’s a… gratifying Sunday. ;-)

I attended the first of my baptism class yesterday. Yes, after some deliberation, I have finally decided to attend the class, which will end in ten weeks’ time. I don’t think I will be getting baptised this year though, maybe next year. But I know that I shouldn’t be waiting any longer. It is a commandment of Jesus Christ that believers be baptised, and I guess that with the many crisis that I experienced internally this year, I know that I don’t want to leave a backdoor for myself either. Previously, I asked what the point is with baptism when I saw that there were baptised Christians who later back-slid. But an older sister reminded me that God will continue to pursue those whom are His and shared her greater resolution to obey Christ after her baptism. There are still issues in my life that I know that I need to resolve with God, and I will need time to do that. But in the end, I will burn the bridge. And there will be no turning back.

    Dearest Yingzhi,

    Thanks for sharing your comments on the blog. I am a faithful reader of your blog 🙂

    Thanks alot for helping us to set up the place and room. Can we do it together the next time? I love to work and serve with others in small little ways, and to worship the Lord with my all. So remember to get me before you leave service k?

    But of cos, if you have helpers in mind, go ahead still with them…

    I am glad I am in baptism class now. I felt it is the right timing for me and i am really glad.

    Of course I have many struggles, the very questions you posed yourself are the very questions I posed myself as well…

    Because I dunno back-slided how many times and they are uncountable. But each fall allowed by the Lord teach me many lessons and one of the lessons is the lesson of grace and faith…

    Grace … like the women who comitted adultery and caught red-handed, pulled by the Pharisees to Jesus, his words to her was I condemn you not, go and sin no more…

    Faith… only Jesus Christ can deliver me from a half-hearted heart in the years to come… the work of the Holy Spirit alone… not Jaime anymore.

    I do not have confidence that I will not fall after my baptism, but I have confidence in Jesus Christ who promised He is able to keep me from falling and present me faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy!

    To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever….Amen….
