Today Luke Samuel publicly proclaimed that he is a child of God by obeying the Biblical command to be "baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."
There is a story behind this day, but it is not mine to tell. It is Luke's.
I pray he will share his story over and over again as a testimony of God's goodness, grace, and forgiveness so others might be encouraged and have a desire stirred up inside of them to seek the Savior and accept the free gift of eternal life that is ours if we "confess with our mouth that Jesus Christ is LORD."
Thank You, Lord, for the beauty of this day.
Our son was already forgiven and set free by the shed blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ, but today he told the world, "I am HIS. And He is MINE. For by grace I have been saved - through faith - it is a gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one can boast."
You began a work in Luke the day You called him to Yourself, and You will be faithful to complete that work until You return for Your own. Thank You, Lord!
You truly are, an amazing God.
