I selected a Bible passage about being “saved” through baptism. I was baptized as a child but have no memory of that day.

For someone to be baptized, saved, as an adult this must be one of the most spiritual moments in their lives.

If you don’t mind sharing what was the moment like when you knew you had faith.

In my case it wasn’t a religious experience. I also can’t think of any one moment, but just gaining confidence over time that I could survive. Basically waking up one day knowing I can make it in life. I can point to my first trip into New York City. Feeling overwhelmed by the all the sights, smells, and all the energy around me. That may have been the first time I really felt I belonged some where.

Acts 2: 36-39 (New International Version)

36 Therefore let all Isreal be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.

37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers what shall we do?

What a terrible moment that must have been. Recognition that mankind has crucified the son of their God.

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off-for all whom the Lord our God will call.

It must have been a beautiful moment for those who choose to be baptized and saved.
