Welcome to a watery grave
9:19 p.m. Today's project was to take Steve and our grandsons to Lake Perris for a baptism hosted by Calvary Chapel Moreno Valley. Our church conducts a number of baptisms on Wednesday nights each summer.
The baptism service and the site have special significance to Steve and me, because when we were first acquainted at a home Bible study, he noticed me for the first time at a Harvest baptism in 1980. And our grandsons Adrian and Xavier were baptized at the same lake three years ago, with their dad, aunties, Steve and me happily looking on!
I welcome the new members taking a public stand for Christ. God has great things in store for you, now that you have passed from darkness into the light (Ephesians 5:8).
As II Corinthians 5:17 says,
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Walk in the light, as He is in the light!
