There’s a South African blog I subscribe to (Thompson’s Two Cents), written by the wife of a pastor. With regularity she posts pictures of Baptism Sunday’s. Every time my heart jumps because there can’t be a more God-honouring, Church-building, Christ-exulting service than a baptism service; when a local manifestation of the Body of Christ gathers to observe, recognise and celebrate the salvation and subsequent obedience of a new convert to Christ who makes a public profession by full immersion baptism.
This morning was Crystal Park Baptist Church’s first Baptism Sunday in 5 years. The excitement was there, the gratefulness and thankfulness and glory to God was there and I was so blessed to be counted among the number of saints who gathered to witness the event.
Praise be to God, after the service a number of other attendees approached me to ask how they too could pursue baptism as a profession of their faith. What a blessing to be part of God’s building of His church.
