Surely not, but I’m beginning to wonder if PEOPLE really understand what these ONE time / ONE day events symbolize.
A wedding is but ONE day but a marriage is a lifetime. When a marriage ends in divorce, the wedding becomes almost meaningless.
A baptism is a ONE day public proclamation of one’s faith in Christ. When a person chooses to walk away from his/her faith, the baptism becomes almost meaningless.
My single point in this blog is simply this – what makes a WEDDING and a BAPTISM meaningful is the LIFE that follows in the daily walk of the believers who strive to glorify God by being obedient to Him.
