Is there anything better as a parent, than to witness one’s adult child profes their love for the Lord? I don’t think so. 🙂
All my children professed their love for the Lord from a young age and whilst I took great delight in it I always felt that the true measure of their faith is told once they mature and become adults or reach an age of accountability. And so it was with just a touch of pride that I witnessed my eldest daughter get baptised yesterday. We have never pushed baptism as we don’t believe it is a decision that anyone else can make for another person. It is an individual choice and declaration. What a blessing and an honour to observe this young lady grow and mature over the last few years… she has sought after God and has a a heart that seeks to honor the Word of the Lord.
Afterwards, we all shared a meal together and broke off into small groups to have a time of fellowship and sharing.
I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.
