洗礼后感

Jesus on cross


我的父母是佛教徒,而我也不知道是从什麽时候开始成为一个“无神论者”,只相信只要靠努力,靠自己的一双手去做事情的话就一定能成功!这种信念一直维持到2010年,当我染上了鼻窦炎之后被逼在马大医院留医,虽然只是短短的日子,却是我这一生中感到最无助,最恐惧,完完全全的体会到人的力量是多么有限,在医院住上几天后病情一点也没有好转,再加上当时身边同时发生了很多超出我个人力量所能及的事故,在夜里我偷偷的流泪了。。。那次的泪不只是伤心泪而已,其中的心情是非笔墨所能形容的,既然过去了我也不想再提起~就在这个时候一个刚认识不久的朋友却经常到医院来探望我,为我祈祷,在他的带领下我接受了主,之后我的病情也渐渐地好转起来,并且还顺利的出院了!这一切对我这个“无神论者”来说真的是百思不得其解的结果??

出院之后,哪位朋友也没有再和我联系,而我这个连祈祷也不会的所谓基督徒,就这样子的每天早上起床第一件事情就是在心里默念着“主呀,感谢您给了我一个无病无痛和美好的一天。”日子一天一天的过去,我也开始不需要再吃药了,人也精神得多了。有了精神第一个要联络的人当然是哪位带领我认识主耶稣的朋友,可能是从小就经常看到父母亲每次求助于神明之后就一定会倒回去“还神”,所以我觉得既然主耶稣帮了我许多,照理我也应该去教堂向他道个谢猜对呀,可是我得到答案只是“不必道谢”四个字而已。

过了一段日子之后,这位朋友还把我介绍到The NEW COVENANT Church,在这个教会里我慢慢的更了解主耶稣的事迹,有一次我被邀请到牧师(Pastor)的家去,在游泳池旁看到一个个教会的会友们下去水里接受牧师的祷告后,然后被按下水里去,有浮上来,当时我真的看傻了眼,不禁向身边其他的会友问一问,才知道这是一个洗礼的仪式,也不知道是什麽原因,我感到非常的兴奋,心里不断的重覆告诉自己一定要参加这个仪式,让自己成为一个真正的基督徒!



上个星期天在教会里报了名参加今天的洗礼之后就每天过着担心的日子,日子一天天的接近,内心就越害怕,因为我不会游泳,一想到要下去游泳池就怕了。。。终于等到今天了,一家六口手拉手来到牧师的家,看着来观礼的人越来越多,本来以为自己会害怕到拒绝接受洗礼的我,却不知道哪来的勇气,竟然在轮到我受洗的时候就自然而然的跑下水去了,说来也奇怪,当站在泳池的中央时,心里却很平静,眼前只有闪闪发亮的波浪,好像就只有我一个人站在哪儿似的,水慢慢的掩上了眉梢,耳朵开始听不见声音。。。忽然又听到了很多的掌声。。。心里想“我回来了”。。。以前的我,不管是好还是坏;以前的事情,不管是对的还是错,在今天都让它成为过去吧!这一刻的我才是真正的跟着主耶稣的脚步重新出发~加油!(阿门

Here's the translated version:-

I was a freethinker eventhough both of my parents are Buddhist. I believed in "no pain, no gain", which one will get to be successful in life as long as they put in efforts and work hard with their own hands.

I was firmed with my thoughts until I was hospitalized in UM due to paranasal sinusitis in year 2010. Although it wasn't a fatal illness, but there was no improvement in my health condition after being admitted for days. That was indeed a nightmare in my life. I felt so helpless in realizing I can barely do anything to make things better this time. I got very depressed, crying alone at night as more issues in life were coming in but I couldn't deal with them as I'm hospitalized.

Alexson, a new friend who I've just got to know not long ago dropped by to pay me a visit at the hospital. After listening to my conditions, he came everyday not only to visit me. He prayed for my healing in the name of Jesus. I then started to follow his prayers and have accepted Jesus into my heart.

Surprisingly, I begun to recover by days and have even discharged from hospital within few days! This miraculous healing power has really amazed a person like me who used to be a freethinker.

Ever since I've discharged from hospital, I feel very grateful of my regained health. Everyday, I started to give thanks to the lord for everything He provides, although I wasn't very sure of how to pray appropriately. As time goes by, my condition became better and I'm fully recovered without needing to continue on medications. As I was brought up in a Buddhist family, I used to see how my parents visit the temple to "pay appreciations" to the God who had answered their prayers. (In Buddhist tradition, there is a ceremony where the believers would need to make contributions to give thanks to their God) So I guess I should also somehow visit the church and do something to say thank you to the God who has healed me. But when I contacted my friend, Alexson told me that I do not need to pay anything!

Then, Alexson brought me to the New Covenant Church. I have started to know more about Jesus by the word of God. I was invited to pastor's house one day to witness the baptism ceremony. I saw the baptism candidates were pressed into water by pastor after a prayer and then they floated up back. After clarifying the meaning of baptism from other church fellows, I felt very excited and I told myself, "I must do this one day! I want to be a real Christian!"

Last week, I have eagerly registered my whole family for the baptism on Easter day. I got nervous when the date drawing near because I couldn't swim. I was worried as I may get drown! Anyway, we went to pastor's place as planned on Easter day. Before the ceremony started, I felt uneasy looking at the swimming pool. At one moment, I was even thinking to cancel my baptism application. But when my name was called, i automatically walked into the water without being conscious of "what going to happen". When pastor start his prayer, i saw the water waving with reflections of lights, suddenly I felt peace in my heart as if I am the only one existing there without bothered by anything else. Slowly I couldn't hear anything and I was already in the water. Then I floated back after a few seconds, I see everyone clapping their hands cheering for me.

It was a great experience as I feel I have a renewal of life! Everything that had happened before this has become "past tense" to me. I feel so proud to be a reborn Christian! I'm looking forward to every blessed days ahead with Jesus being the center of my life! AMEN!
