Grace's Testament to Grace

I had the awesome privilege of baptizing my 8 year old daughter Grace yesterday (as well as three other stellar souls). Her act of repentance and witness is my act of trust in the Spirit to produce fruit in her life for the rest of her days. God is so good.

That's awesome!! Congratulations! I pray that someday soon I get to baptize my little boy and girl...I'm sure it is an awesome privilege.

My Feedreader had 3 great things from Jared Wilson today. (guest blog at Justin Taylor's, 15 years of ministry and this one) I honestly was blessed by all three of them, but perhaps most of all by this one. I look forward to (and pray for) the day when I baptize my son.

Jared and Becky,
I remember when Macy was baptized. This was no less thrilling! I know you both are grateful for God's faithfulness and mercy on their behalf. Thank you for sharing again. I love watching baptisms (in person or via pictures). Baptism NEVER gets old and encourages my soul every single time. Thank you. Blessings!

That must have been the best feeling in the world. Great photo, too!
