The Baptism of my Daughter

Today was a special day for my family and I today...

I had the opportunity to baptize my daughter today. Several years ago, I led my daughter one night to life in Christ. It was a powerful moment, a moment she still remembers!

Today, we followed through with Christ's command to baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Today was a day to declare publicly the decision she made personally.

Today was an opportunity to identify with Christ...His life in her and her life in Him.

At the baptism of Jesus we read these words:
Matthew 3:16 After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”

I thank God for the opportunity to have led her to life in Christ as well as the opportunity to have baptized. I thank God for 20+ people that came to today's service to share in this special moment. Today was a great day!
