By the grace of God, I Lawrence L. Bridget, became a Christian by being baptized as demonstration and confession of my faith in Jesus Christ and for the forgiveness of my sins on the Second day of November 2003, at Newark’s Church of Christ, New Jersey.

I am a part of a loving family, or fellowship – the body of Christ. Now that I am a Christian I want to know how I should conduct myself in my various personal relationships and activities.

Now, I need to study further to find instructions and guidance for my private and personal life. I have learned already that God’s grace through my faith in Christ prompts me to live as holy and righteously as I can.

Here are qualities I will try to develop in my everyday living: my activities will be virtuous; I will always be striving for more knowledge; I will develop self-control; I will learn patience; godliness will be my goal; I will try to show kindness to all; and in all things I will try to show a spirit of love.

Not all these qualities can be learned overnight. It may take a long time to attain great improvement, but the Christian life is described as a race, a battle, and as growth.

So, I will try to grow day by day to be more like my Master until, after some years, all who know me may see the sincerity and reality of my Christianity. God bless us all.
