Being Baptized

In two days I will be getting baptized. I'm going down, getting dunked, going under. I will be publicly proclaiming my faith in Jesus Christ before over one hundred people. Wow, that makes me nervous to think of it that way. But I'm going through with it anyway. I'll just have to do it scared.

I will be having my funeral Sunday after the sermon. Resurrection following the death and burial. I will be raised with Christ and dead to the old self once and for all.
