chosen

All of Heaven rejoices with me today.  My youngest two have made the decision to be baptized. 

It's something I've been praying about for a long time...that they would come to this decision completely on their own.  And they have.

John 15:16  "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit~fruit that will last.  Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name."

God chose them. 

And they are choosing to publicly pronounce their faith in Him by being obedient unto Him. 

Romans 6:4  "For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives."

Second Corinthians 5:17  "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!"  

I have cried happy tears all morning.  And we're going in today to talk to our children's pastor, Austin.  This is something he likes to do before they're baptized.  

You can bet that when the date is set, you will get an invitation to come and watch and celebrate with us.

Love to all.

I am so excited for you. I remember when my youngest was baptized and joined our church. My sweet mother and dad were there to share in that happy day. Mom was crying and said that she was so glad that she would have all of her grandchildren with her in heaven! So now you know that all of your children will dwell with you forever and ever! You are blessed beyond measure. Marti
