Last night a young woman I know sent me some photos of her baby getting Baptized. Of course they were adorable. Later I realized it was Holy Trinity Sunday. In the Gospel reading, Jesus told His disciples
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
One of the other Scripture readings talks about how we have received the Spirit of adoption and are children of God. I don’t know if the young woman chose this day specifically, or if it just happened to work out. Either way, it is clear in Scripture that through Baptism, we belong to God and that He is taking care of us. I know her family will be blessed. It was a beautiful reminder for me as well.
I Found God today being reminded that through Baptism, I and my family are children of God.
