A VERY IMPORTANT LIFE EVENT!!!
My youngest son, who is now 18 years old, decided to be baptized Sunday! It was exciting, tearful, thrilling and just an answer to all those years of prayer for him to choose to follow Jesus. He had been to church camp earlier in July and came home saying he was ready to be baptized. Then when we said, "How about tonight?" he said he wanted to study some more. So we had several small conversations about it throughout the week and he told his Dad Saturday night he wanted to do it the next day at church.
I just want to say for all the parents who were like me, worried that your child would never get serious about it or think they are too far gone or their heart is hardened, hang in there! We tried really hard not to harp on it or mention it much once we did a formal Bible study with each of our children at age 12. You just hope and pray and live it out in your everyday life. Hopefully they enjoy youth group and have good friends. I'm just so thankful for good friends and other adults in my son's life who have influenced him to follow Jesus! So thankful for forgiveness and God's incredible love and Jesus's sacrifice for us and Heaven!
WELCOME TO GOD'S FAMILY, SON!
