We’ve Only Just Begun

In my previous post on November 20, 2013,  I wrote about baptism and how being baptized does not mean there will be no temptations or testings in our Christian walk.

Baptism, to me, represents the start of a new life – a life that will always be full of choices, full of challenges and full of changes of direction. It represents a life of excitement and joy. It also begins a pilgrimage with many disappointments, frustrations and pain. All of it for our benefit. This will ever be so true because we have God guiding us along this highway called Christianity.

And, if you have become a Christian and baptized at a much elder stage of your life, there will still be much of life ahead for you now and beyond the horizon of this life.


The video song below is the song that new believers in Jesus Christ just baptized sing.

As you tweak the lyrics of this song, see if you can find several potential and powerful symbolism within it.

We’ve only just begun to live
White lace and promises
A kiss for luck and we’re on our way
We’ve only begun

Before the risin’ sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We’ll start out walkin’ and learn to run
And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talkin’ it over, just the two of us
Workin’ together day to day, together

And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun

Sharing horizons that are new to us
Watching the signs along the way
Talkin’ it over, just the two of us
Workin’ together day to day, together, together

And when the evening comes, we smile
So much of life ahead
We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow
And yes, we’ve just begun
