BEING BAP-A-TIZED


Years back when our youngest daughter, Kimberly, was about 4, she saw her first baptism. We were explaining the meaning, and her response was, "I want to be bap-a-tized!" We talked her into waiting until she was old enough to pronounce it --- but the attitude was right.


More recently, Kim's daughter Morgan saw her first baptism. (Now you, knew I'd find a way to talk about one of my grandkids, right?) Anyway, when the baptism was over, Kim saw that Morgan had tears on her face. She asked what was wrong. Morgan looked kind of confused and said, "I think the tears are happy."


There a reason that Jesus said, "You must become like a little child in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3). Whether you're 4 or 94, I hope you can see that Baptism as a wonderful Gift from God. No one should be Baptised with the attitude, "This is something I HAVE to do." It's a meaningful way we can respond to God's love by joining in his death and resurrection.
