#3 is going to be baptized this evening after classes! Tdub will have the honors. :)
He's been talking about it off and on for over 2 years now. But this time, it's the real deal. He is 12 and in the 6th grade. He has communicated to us that he wants to be baptized not just because he believes that Jesus is God's son who died for our sins....but because he is a sinner and he needs Jesus to forgive him of his sins.
And so we celebrate this new LIFE in Christ. Baptism, in our faith, represents one's statement of faith in Jesus as the Lord of ALL and a commitment to allowing Jesus to be the Lord of your life. It's a beginning, not an end. It's a time of declaring "come what may" and "nevertheless". Jesus is Lord. I am saved.
