Baptism

Do you have any idea how cool it is to baptize an adult?  That’s when I am most aware of God’s power and presence.  Paul kind of came out of nowhere, started attending our church, and came to me to be baptized.  We didn’t do anything different.  In fact, I did nothing.  God did it all.  I started the baptism part of the service and I could feel the emotion welling up in me.  Lisa can always hear that in my voice.  I pulled it together and will remember this baptism for a long, long time.  As I told him at the conclusion, it is a privilege to call him a brother in Christ.  I can’t wait to see what God has in store for him!
