We recently celebrated our son’s spiritual birthday. If you know me, you know how much I love birthdays and celebrations, so we honor the days our children chose to be baptized. They both gave their hearts to Christ before they were baptized, but the day they were baptized was the day they made one of their first decisions to obey for the sake of love of their Lord and Savior. (This is just a day for us to enjoy, not take on doctrinal debates. )
Here is Max’s story.
Max chose to be baptized after a church meeting in 2007 after thinking on it for about a week and talking with me. When Brian approached him after work, saying, 'I heard some good news. You are thinking about baptism.' That was all Brian said, and Max walked right into the bathroom and pulled back the curtain. Brian quickly got out of uniform and the family squeezed into our bathroom to pray, sing and baptize Max! Happy Birthday, Son!
