The spirit is willing but the creek was cold
I remember a few years ago me and my 2 boys(Justin and Jake) were baptized in Roupes creek down below the old Tannehill ironworks. Jake(6 years old at the time) asked if he could get baptized, I told him he could if he had asked Jesus into his heart.
It was a hot July day as the preacher led us out into the water…I never will forget when he immersed me and I came up…The preacher thought I was shouting but it wasn’t a move of the spirit but that the water was ice cold.
