Sunday Night I had the awesome privilege to be able to baptize Samantha Muir. I want you to know that I think that being a part of someone’s baptism is the most awesome thing that I get to do as a pastor and every baptism is special. But I want you to know that this young ladies story has something special to it. She is a beautiful young lady that has an awesome story of how God has really taken care of her. You will see her dad Steve standing up with her and sharing her story with the rest of the group of people that were there to celebrate the next step of baptism. What most people don’t know is that Samantha at a young age drowned and was dead for ten minutes, she has lived with some of the challenges that come with being dead for that long. But on Sunday, February 15, 2009 she shared with the world that she has given her life to Christ. Not to many years ago the same water that tried to take her life was now representing a new life. Don’t think that wasn’t scary for her.
What is keeping you from sharing with others how Christ has made a difference in your life?
