This year so far

18 November 2012
When I created this blog I was supposed to use it as a platform to help me grow spiritually. It was to be my journey in spirit and in faith. I have so slacked on updates. I intend to give this blog more love in 2013. Though there is no time like the present. So what I aim to do going forward is share what I learn in church through self study and Bible studies classes.

Which brings me to today. I was presented with a Certificate for completing my church's Basic Bible Study Course which covers all the foundation topics. Topics covered:

  • Salvation
  • Sin
  • Water Baptism
  • The Church
  • Baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • Communion
  • Power of the Tongue
  • Principles of Giving
  • Praise and Worship
  • Prayer and Faith
I have also been a constant attendee to the advance classes too. At one point I was attending twice a week as my thirst for knowledge grows. God provided a way for me to attend these classes and I am so thankful. 

For years I thought I was not worthy enough to be Baptised. During the class on water Baptism I got my answers. I was so moved that I had to make a choice and no longer had an excuse. In fact my excuse and reasoning became redundant. So in April of this year I got Baptised. Had I had the knowledge years ago I would have taken the big dip back then. Though this year was my time and I am so happy for it. So many of my friends have also been born again in recent years. Which reminds me of the prophet who attended my church's conference last year who quoted this verse from the Bible 
And in that day the Lord shall again lift up His hand a second time to recover (acquire and deliver) the remnant of His people which is left, from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Upper Syria], and from the countries bordering on the [Mediterranean] Sea.
Isaiah 11:11(Amp)

I am also now more pro-active in my church then I was before and my sons love Sunday school.
