Recently, we had the joy of seeing three young ladies in our church baptized. We invited friends and family to join us, and it was a delight to witness these three girls’ hearts for Jesus. All three young ladies had placed their faith in Jesus. These girls were “not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord” (2 Timothy 1:8) and declared to others they belonged to Jesus!
Prior to the baptism, we sang three songs picked by the girls. Next Dad preached, and then Joseph, Anna, Jesse, and Mary sang Holy, Holy, Holy. It was a perfect way to prepare for such a special moment. Nathan baptized Abby, and after that Bethany. The other dad baptized his daughter.
Afterward, almost everyone went out for a treat at a frozen custard place. It was a great way to fellowship and end the evening.
Afterward, we fellowshipped.
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death:
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by
the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk
in newness of life.”
