Baby Baptists . . .    May 13, 2006
 
Sunday was actually the 13th...
It was 3:00 a.m. when I put the title on this video, so that's what happens.
Since it was 'Mother's Day' we had four infants, their parents, and even grandparents on the platform for a Baby Dedication Service.

The opening verse is from 2 Timothy 1:3-5

I thank God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. Recalling your tears, I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy.

I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.

Luke 1:39-45

At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

In a loud voice she exclaimed:

     "Blessed are you among women,
      and blessed is the child you will bear!
      But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord
      should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting
      reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.
      Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has
      said to her will be accomplished!"

Acts 2:14-21

 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 
 
" 'In the last days, God says,
      I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
   Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
      your young men will see visions,
      your old men will dream dreams. 
 Even on my servants, both men and women,
      I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
      and they will prophesy. 
 I will show wonders in the heaven above
      and signs on the earth below,
      blood and fire and billows of smoke. 
 The sun will be turned to darkness
      and the moon to blood
      before the coming of the great and glorious day
      of the Lord. 
 And everyone who calls
      on the name of the Lord will be saved.'

Romans 1:18-25

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
