This is a day which I will enjoy.

There are very few symbols in the Christian church as powerful as baptism.

There is water.  A person enters the water.  This is them.  As they are. 

Then they are placed below the water.  When they come up the symbolism is one of death to what was there previously.  Arising from the water shows a new life begun.  Arising from the water makes a statement of allegiance to Jesus.  Arising from the water is a public declaration of intent to follow hard after Jesus.

That is what I love!

And today I witness this once again.  Wish you could be here.  And those of you that are able to attend – enjoy with me!!
