We can all agree that it’s truly a blessed moment when someone makes the decision to accept Jesus Christ into their hearts. That person is giving every bit of themselves to Him and it is such a special time.
Today, this 6-year-old has made this incredible choice and he’s standing at the front of the church ready to commit to a Christ-centered life. As the preacher speaks to the congregation, the young boy looks on in delight.
You can almost feel the joy and excitement that he has as he wants to be washed in the water. But I think the boy got a little bit too excited because as the preacher was about to place a washcloth over the boy’s face, he decided he couldn’t wait any longer.
The 6-year-old shouts “I’m gonna do it!” and holds his nose and plunges into the water. He reemerges with a triumphant shout and the whole congregation erupts into laughter.
Even the pastor wasn’t quite sure what to do next. But I do know that this is going to be a baptism that this church never forgets. This little guy was certainly moved by the Spirit!
Acts 2:38 “And Peter said to them, “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.”
