At our church, before any baptism, we get to see a short video of the person’s testimony. I love this tradition because it is so encouraging.
A couple weeks ago, in the middle of her testimony, a little girl told us all about heaven. She said, “In heaven, you don’t have to wear shoes or take baths or brush your teeth!” It was really cute.
She concluded with the all important, “and I just really love Jesus.”
On another one of the testimonies, a man told us that his brother brought him to Christ. I immediately thought of the four friends who brought the lame man to Jesus and cut the hole in the roof to lower him down to Jesus so he could be healed. Then I hoped that others were as stirred as I was to make a difference — to carry our friends and neighbors to Chist so he can save them too.
