Last night we watched and we cheered and we cried as fifty-eight believers made public their faith and dying to death, rose to new life. Young and old, new believers and those who had been walking with the Lord for decades, those who were stepping out in simple obedience and the one who gave up everything to follow Christ, led into the water by a pastor, friend, mentor. And our youngest, led by her daddy in that first step of obedience to Christ’s commands, that first example He set for us. Washed by the water, made new by the Spirit.
And we rejoice and give thanks for new life, eternal life, life abundant. And for His unending grace.

This challenge was posted by a cousin of mine on Facebook last night….
What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?
What would you be left with? May your day, your week, your life be filled with thankfulness.
For His Glory ~
One thought on “Washed Clean”
What a wonderful list this week! New believers and the baptism of your youngest. Your heart must be so full right now.
