“This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Baptism is for the committed
Baptism is for the responsible
“One’s relationship with the Son of God is the most important commitment he will ever have upon this earth.”
Baptism is for one who understands
“Lord, forgive me for failing to serve Thee and to render grateful praise to Thee for Thy loving-kindness to me. O Jesus, pardon me, and I will begin to live a new life, henceforth serving Thee alone.”
Be careful with arbitrary conclusions
No one can make a sweeping generalization regarding another’s baptism. No one is able to judge, based upon mere age.
Be prepared with gentleness
There is no doubt but that small children will, on occasion, request baptism–when it is readily apparent that they do not comprehend the gravity of the situation.
“Behold I and the children which God hath given me are saved by grace.”
