The Joy of Membership

This weekend Krista and I will be taking a trip back up to our favorite state, Ohio, and some of our favorite people (her family and former church). The reason for this short weekend vacation is that my sister-in-law and her husband are getting baptized and joining the church. This has been some exciting news in our household since we heard about it.

We love to see our friends and family join godly/Biblical churches and become partakers in the blessings of church membership. There is a real joy in being a church member that we want for all those we love. And to be able to share in that this weekend as we both witness their professions of faith in baptism, and the church's testimony to that faith in accepting them into the membership is a joy to us. There is, so to speak, joy for all involved this weekend.

Thank You Lord for saving Josh and Jayme.
