Ha! A trade in, I like that. Push that old clunker into the car lot, He’ll take it. He does amazing work. 🙂

Brand new me? Sounds intriguing. But this one me is all the me I have.

I actually had to think about this one a bit and I think I’m ok with this me 😀 Don’t get me wrong, I’m looking forward to the day when I will be made perfect in every way, when I’ll be the person God intended me to be in every way! Who wouldn’t love that idea? But for this life, no, I think I’d rather carry around my scars and imperfections. They’re like, outward symbols of God’s triumphs in my life. *shrugs* Hard to explain

Hey I didn’t say it, God did! All things become new and all that! Good point though in that even though we become a new creation, we are still who we are in many ways. I didn’t much care for the old me, so I am glad I traded. But, there remains enough of him so I don’t ever forget. Which actually sort of explains it.

Oh yeah good point! You know I’ve never had a conversion experience – I cannot remember a time that I didn’t know that God had saved me. So I’ve always kinda lived as this new and ever changing creation – I simply can’t remember *before* – so I probably came at it from a different perspective.
I try and avoid the topic of infant baptism because it’s still an area of (let’s face it) massive disagreement but just to share a little personal history, I was baptized when I was about 2 weeks old and my parents must have talked to me about Jesus early and often, cuz like I said, I’ve always known I was saved (even if I didn’t know the how’s and why’s 21st first).

Ack. I hit the wrong button
I was just gonna say, *something* happened in my baptism, that much is clear. I experienced it, and if baptism is, as I believe, God’s work in us and not our work, then it makes perfect sense.
Anyhoo, not to sidetrack this into a discussion on infant baptism, just giving you a little backstory!

I think what you experienced is pretty common in people raised in church really. It just sort of is what it is.
Baptism. I am probably going to write on that someday. Obviously it’s an important topic. I am after all…Baptist
