Rejoice with Us!

Romans 6:3-7 says:

Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? There fore, we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in Newness of life. For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.

Please rejoice with us as our oldest son was buried with Christ in baptism on Sunday, January 22nd at approximately 11:45 pm.

Praise God! What wonderful news!! I am praying for my DS (12.5) to make the decision to follow Christ in Baptism as well. He has not asked yet, but we are providing good food for his soul and encouragement. Sometimes it takes a while for teens to stop and hear (listen and obey) God's Spirit speaking to them. I am so happy for you and your son!!
