where life begins

In Sunday school… we read the book of Hebrews… chapter by chapter… the entire book in one sitting… no time left to discuss… or share thoughts… just washed with the Word…

I entered worship with this picture of Christ… the Ultimate Sacrifice… High Priest… One who made the Way… into the Holy of Holies… into God’s presence… tore the veil separating us from the Father… restored relationship… 

The service began with sixteen youth… entering… by the Way…
five baptized…
all confirmed…

The first hymn… painted the picture…

I was there to hear your borning cry,
I’ll be there when you are old.
I rejoiced the day you were baptized,
to see your life unfold.
it struck me… lifebegins at baptism
baptism… immersion… into God…
Father… Son… Holy Spirit…
We are born dead… spiritual stillborns…
raised to life in Christ
God… heaven… rejoices… at baptism… a new life… unfolding…
We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
Romans 6:4
