Galatians 3:26,27 (KJV)
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will be convicted of their sins and repent. May this conviction to follow You, lead them to the waters of baptism.

I am so grateful for baptism. That is the time that You did come into my life and made me alive. I was dead but was crucified with You, at the cross, Jesus. Then, as I come out of the water, You give me newness of life. This was my new beginning and I am so grateful for this opportunity to have You in my life now. I was so lost in this world without You. In baptism, You have set a fire in my soul to serve You, my King. Where there was so much darkness in my life, You have scattered it and ushered in Your light. Where there was shame and guilt, You've replaced it with Your love. I no longer serve the lusts of the flesh but fight it with You, Jesus, in my life. You are my shield and my fortress.

I love You. Amen.
