The lady I baptized during the worship service yesterday was truly feeling the joy of having her sins washed away and being united with Jesus. As soon as she came up out of the water, she praised God and grabbed me with such excitement that I thought she was going to dunk me under the water!
Her joy was uninhibited. She did not care what other people thought. Her response to the grace that God had given her through Jesus was pure worship.
This lady’s enthusiasm was contagious. Joy ran rampant in our church yesterday.
I hope that this new convert’s zeal continues. Sometimes we tend to lose the joy and excitement that comes with being saved. We all need to hold on to that feeling that we experienced when we first came to Christ.
“Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.”—Romans 12:11.
