Happy Re-birthday to Me!

I had a renewal of faith. Last May 8, I was baptized into the Christian faith and am now officially a member of the Victory Christian Fellowship. The pictures aren't posted in the Victory Makati Facebook page yet so I have no pictures to share. 

So how is it different from before? For me, being a member of a Christian community has led me to explore deeper into the Christian faith. Essentially, Catholics are also Christians since being a Christian simply means believing in the existence of Jesus Christ and acknowledging that He is the Lord and Savior of all people. So it's no different, really. It's just that I get to learn more about Christ through Sunday/Tuesday services than I do during Sunday Masses and I also get to commune more personally with other people, share my life with them. It's great!

I think religion is just a label. I think what's important is the RELATIONSHIP and the BELIEF we have in our Lord. How we believe in the promises He gave us. How we live in His fullness every single day. How we strive to be more Christlike in our actions through the transforming power of God's Word. Understanding and believing in the power of the Cross, what it means to us and how it affects us now. It doesn't matter how we do it. As long as it is in line with God's Word, it's okay.
