A Memorable Baptism

I felt led to share this because I don't ever remember being moved at a baptism as I was today. JC was baptized today. It was done at his home, in his pool. He was surrounded by his beloved family and friends. It was a beautiful, spiritual moment and I was blessed to have witnessed it.

Before he stepped into the pool, the pastor read Matthew 3:13-17. Needless to say, my tears started flowing...

I have been to baptisms before. But I've never been to one like this one. I was moved beyond words.

Before he was baptized, the pastor asked JC to share how he came to accept Jesus Christ. JC shared his testimony and it was from his heart. I'm pretty sure I was not the only one that was touched by his words.

When he arose from the water I couldn't help but shed tears. As he walked by us, to stand by the door, all I wanted to do was to hug him. I wanted let him know how we (his family & friends), the angels and God were rejoicing because he had accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. I wanted to tell him, how his profession of faith and following it up with baptism was being celebrated in the heavens. There were others around and I held back. Maybe one day, I'll be able to share with him, just how blessed I was to be present at his baptism.
