A Unique Privilege

Yesterday, at Mud Creek Baptist Church, we baptized 14 people! I had the privilege of baptizing each of these new members at our church. Uniquely, we baptized three generations in one family – a grandmother, daughter, and three children. Sometimes the tragedies, frustrations, and negative stories inundate our information intake. It can be a bit depressing to see the depravity within us and around us. However, the most real truth surrounding us is not our depravity, but God’s goodness and grace. God used this family to remind me that He is still redeeming, still showing grace, and still leading people of all ages to faith in Him. When the information around us indicates an abundance of bad news, remember that God is good and that He’s still at work. Three generations expressing faith in Him is proof of that!
