In 1865 Walt Whitman, an American poet wrote one of the most familiar lines of poetry in the world, in the opening lines of his poem, “Song of Myself.”


In that poem, Walt Whitman speaks as I can only imagine Jesus will speak on that day that He returns to every one of us here Baptized into His identity. He will say, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself, and what I shall assume, you shall assume, for every atom belonging to Me, as good belongs to you.”


On the day that you were Baptized, Jesus remembered you. Every day that you remember that you were Baptized, Jesus remembers you. Every day that you remember His story, He remembers yours combined with His. Every day He says, “I celebrate you, I sing you, and what I shall assume you shall assume, for every atom belonging to Me, as good belongs to you.”
