Free to Fly

When were you baptized?  What do you remember about it? I was baptized when I was 27 after hearing a very clear sermon on baptism.  My pastor baptized me in pool.  It was a very meaningful experience for me.  

What stands out to me is the picture of being buried with Christ in death as he put me under the water and then raised to new life in Christ as he lifted me out!  

I chose the picture today with butterflies in it.  Catapillars go though a cocoon stage and then emerge into the world as colorful butterflies.  Before Christ we were like the caterpillar and walking around foraging for food, stuck in an awkward state.  After Christ we are like vibrantly colored butterflies.  We are free to fly and soar in our walks with Him!
