Don't miss your next chance to get baptized, Sunday, April 28th! To sign up, visit www.epiclifeorl.com/getconnected 🌊 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life.
It is a symbol of your new life as a Christian. We bury the ‘old life’ and we rise to walk in a ‘new life’. Baptism is like a wedding ring, it is the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart, a commitment that has to be followed through and lived out on a daily basis.

Knowing who God says you are: ✔️ sets you free from the fear of who your past says you are. ✔️ sets you free from the fear of who others say you are. ✔️ sets you free from the fear of who the enemy says you are. ✔️ sets you free from the fear of the future.
“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

Hmmmm.. the dangers of what could happen when you fall for someone with a seriously toxic, broken heart..
When you get into a relationship with someone and they’re not ready because they’re damaged inside (even including yourself).. how do you expect to love and receive genuine, lasting love with a broken heart that resulted from past experiences?
In a relationship built on brokenness, your foundation will eventually fall.. You find that loving a toxic, broken person ends up with them actually breaking you and your precious heart. ♡
It doesn’t mean they’re a bad person but it’s always best to give them and yourself time to become whole and heal from past experiences.. another relationship won’t fix it.. and you may even feel sorry for them and want to help. But what is necessary is time alone with God to allow Him to do the healing and restoration in heart that nobody else can do. ♡
the healing process isn’t easy. But it is worth it. Because everyone deserves whole, beautiful love that lasts. ♡
I know it’s easier said than done but to be transparent I’ve gone through things previously myself. I never speak about things like this that I have not experienced.. I want to help and encourage those with a broken heart to wait on God and be healed in this season
