John accepted Christ!

We had some exciting news this month. John put his trust in Christ and got saved! He has been asking for some time, but you could tell he has just not understood until now. He would ask, we would explain what the Bible said and he would say, "OK! Thanks!" and run off and play. This time however was different.  He went to Rick and asked him to explain heaven and what Jesus did for him. Rick explained it to him and you could tell the light bulb turned on... He got it and put his faith in Jesus. He has been a different child since. It has been amazing. He has been a more contented child. He is more aware of himself and attentive to others. It has been a blessing to see the difference it has made in his life by living each day for Christ. It has also been a blessing to see when he reads his Bible, he accepts that is what God wants him to do and tries to apply it as he can. He has been a living example excepting God's Word as the faith of a child with immediate obedience and complete faith that it right. He asked to get baptized the following Sunday.  After church service, the church we went to the Irish Sea and he got baptized. It was COLD! He got startled when he felt how cold the water was and took a mouthful of salty water! I was afraid it would damper the experience for him, but he was relatively unphased and thinks it was a great experience. He even found a piece of sea glass on the shore. He took it home and drew a blue cross on it to commemorate his baptism. Now, every time someone mentions the sea, he adds "it's yucky, salty, I know!"
