Life, Love, and Dirty Diapers

 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” – Matthew 28:19, NIV 1984 version

I had such a fun and refreshing weekend, which I am sure I will write about later, because I still need to process through and figure out what I want to say, but I will write a little bit about this verse. Not a lot, because I’m not an expert, but a little, because I love Jesus and it would be a mistake of me to write this blog without ever mentioning him because he is such a huge part of my life.

So anyways, this is the verse I wanted to pick to share for you today. If I was in any way design talented, I would make a beautiful background with it to give to you for your computer, but I’m not and I won’t pretend to be. Anyways, I think this verse has been on my mind or at least in the back of my mind lately for the implications of this verse. If we live like this verse is true, we should live our lives as a witness to Christ. Now I don’t necessarily mean shoving Christ down the throats of people you know, but if you love Christ, your life is different because I think you can have this sense of peace and joy and contentment that can’t be found anywhere else and when people see that they will get curious.

This verse too is also part of the reason why I believe in infant baptism and why Nick and I had Dominic baptized at just two weeks old. It’s such an amazing thing to think how God can use just His word and the water and make someone a part of his family. Isn’t that so neat?

Anyways, I don’t have anything else to say. I hope you had a good weekend because I had an awesome one. I’m off to go to church, but I will write more tomorrow – about what I don’t know, but you’ll probably hear about my weekend a few days from now. Or at the very least, sometime within the next week.
