We normally do our baptisms at a Baptist church down the street and have everyone being baptized share their story before they go into the water. But this past Saturday we went back to the beach and I’m torn. I prayed as each person came forward and asked God to give me a word for them. So as they walked up, I prayed for them and spoke into their lives something that God had put in my heart.
The “indoor” baptisms are great because each person’s family and friends are able to hear them tell the story of how Jesus has changed their lives. But I loved the intimacy of being able to pray with each person and share something personal with them.
Either way, what does amaze me is the lives that are being changed by Jesus. That never gets old!
