Police Officer and Lamb of God
Police Officer and Lamb of God. As the police
officer waded into the river for baptism, the pastor's assistant
politely asked if he needed any help with the removal of his uniform.
The officer replied, "Before I was in my mother's womb, the Lord knew
me and called me to be a police officer.
So the uniform is part of His calling too, don't you
After the baptism, one of the other pastors commented
that he had never seen any person baptized before in a full police
Beloveds, I did not realize baptism in full uniform (peak cap,
notebook, firearm and all) would cause such a stir later.
You see, I had just given my life to the Lord. What He
had done on the cross for me had just become a reality. I didn't care
much about the standard of dress for baptism. All I knew was that He
"touched" me as a police officer and I was merely responding, uniform
and all. Didn't He say "Come as you are and I will give you rest".
What a glorious time that was for the family and I. Yes
the whole family, including my 70-year old dad, went under the water
with me. Every time I think back to that day in 2003, it brings tears
to my eyes, of the love that flowed then and still does now, for the
Lord Jesus and for my family.
Many a times as a mere human being, I let Jesus down, no
doubt about that. Sometimes I react to circumstances without thinking
and sin as a result. But I have always made it my business to
immediately run to Jesus to repent and confess all my sins. And to ask
Him to forgive me, which He does ever so willingly.
I know Jesus Christ loves me so much that He is quick to
forgive me and clean me of all the unrighteousness I am involved in
(not for my sake but for His own sake). You see, He is a Righteous GOD
and therefore unrighteousness cannot exist in the same environment as
The Living GOD wants to be "ONE" with me through His Son
Jesus Christ, but my sins and unrighteousness can become an obstacle.
So when I confess to Jesus from my heart, He is quick to clean and
restore me. What a loving GOD we serve.
Psalms 103:14 also tells me that He knows my frame that
I am made of dust. And that I can never be perfect like His Son Jesus
Christ. So He lovingly perseveres with me. But He still wants me to be
sensitive to sin so they (sin) do not get in the way of our love for
Beloveds, whether you are a police officer or a military
personnel or a civilian, the Living God loves us. If you have not yet
given your life to Him, I pray that you will do so soon. Come as you
are. He is in the business of cleaning. Let Him clean you. Because
after He finishes, you will never be the same again.
Come and experience this Love. It's like nothing you
have ever experienced before on this side of Heaven. I beg you not to
wait too long. The Lamb of God is coming soon to collect His own kind.
Are you ready to meet with Him?
