Day 106. Precious Memories.

This is a photo of my second born son, when we dedicated him as a baby.

This is simply a time of prayer, in front of our church family, with our pastor (this was our dear friend and worship pastor at the time), to promise to our child and to God, that as parents, we will teach that child about Jesus.  We will raise him in a Christ-following family, and hopefully, one day, when he is old enough to understand, he will choose to follow Christ himself.

For this precious son, that day was last week, on Mother's Day.  And, today, on this very same church platform, our son went forward and told our sweet pastor that he had asked Jesus into his heart and wanted to be baptized to show and tell everyone that he wants to live his live for Christ.

This morning, our pastor preached about heaven.  I sat through the service, contemplating what joy it is to know that two of my sons have now come to know Jesus as their Savior.

A.  Admit that you are a sinner, and need a Savior.
B.  Believe that Jesus is Lord, and that He died on the cross to take your place.
C.  Confess to everyone that you love Him and want to follow His will for your life.
D.  Demonstrate your decision by obeying Him and being baptized, demonstrating a picture of burying your old life, and starting a new one with Jesus Christ.

My son will remember this decision for the rest of his life.

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. -2Timothy 3:15
