On a river bank by a gently flowing river, a group gathers. They watch as the newly saved makes their way into the cold waters. They wait with hands clasped and tears streaming as another soul takes a dip into the cool waters on a summer day. A quick down and up and it is over.
But it's not really over. It is just beginning. That one moment in time when your life is totally changed. That one moment in time when you are truly one with your God. You rise up out of the water. You feel the Holy Spirit descend upon you and you know what Isaiah 43:1 means when it says:
....“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
