Baptism Challenge - Day 10
Sharing a great Baptism testimony - part 4
Welcome to Day 10 of the Baptism Challenge!
Here's the scripture in today's video: 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (English Standard Version)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (New International Version)
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
(King James Version)
Preparing a great Baptism testimony - part 4
It’s a good idea to wrap up your baptism testimony by answering the question, “How has my life been changed since I’ve been saved?”
Let's read 2 Corinthians 5:17. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
When God saves us, our eyes are opened to the emptiness of the things we used to do. We likely had an empty feeling in our lives that we tried to fill with things that only made us feel more empty. People try to fill the void in their lives with relationships, pleasure, even work and busyness.
But if you are in Christ, you’re a new creation. That old life is gone now, and God replaces the emptiness in your life with Himself. Instead of emptiness Christians enjoy peace and joy and fullness of life through Christ. And that reality is literally something created by God. No one else can give that to you.
You did not decide to re-create yourself into a new person. God didn’t just take what you were before and clean you up a little bit. He has made you a completely new creation. Your old habits, desires, selfishness, and even the things that you loved has changed. It has become new.
How has God made that a reality in your life? Share that in your baptism testimony!
