Yesterday was Pi day. Yet before I knew that magical, irrational number, March 14 was the day on which I was baptized. I guess I was in 5th grade back in 1999 when I made the decision to obey in faith the gospel which I had been taught.
It’s interesting to me that I could quite calmly make the biggest decision of my life as an 11 year old. But now that I have been a Christian longer than not, I look back and realize that in the last 12 years, I have sinned WAY more than in the first 11.
That brings me to this song. I have been a big Relient K fan ever since their first album. They put out a single a year or two ago that I just recently started paying attention to. It’s called “Forget and Not Slow Down.” The chorus is a great reminder of the fact that on our journey to follow God, there will be many times that we fall down, turn aside, or just lose track of where we are.
But God will always be there to “resurrect the saint within the wretch.”
“But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son continually cleanses us of all sin.” 1 John 1:7
And since I’m on the topic of baptism, here’s “Rebirthing” by Skillet. I personally think we should blast this song over the PA system whenever someone is baptized.
