On Saturday I'll be baptizing a 7-month old boy. I finally arranged a baptismal class tonight. Pray the Holy Spirit liven things up so it doesn't simply prove to be perfunctory: Lord, touch this couple with Your Mercy so they may glimpse the inexhaustible treasure and awesome responsibility You set before them! Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” 40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
