A special moment for Tauren Wells ("Known" "God's Not Done With You Yet") this past weekend! His son Kanaan was baptized Sunday morning by his Grandad. Tauren posted: We’ve talked about it a lot but we’ve always told him that this was his decision to make when he was ready. A week ago, out of the blue, he said he said he was ready. I asked him a few questions why he felt it was time and he had obviously thought it out. For our family baptism is about more than merely ‘going public’ with our faith. For us, it is entering into a covenant relationship with God by the invocation of His covenant name, Jesus Christ. 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Well this is a Father’s Day I’ll never forget. Kanaan was baptized this morning by his Grandad. We’ve talked about it a lot but we’ve always told him that this was his decision to make when he was ready. A week ago, out of the blue, he said he said he was ready. He was so sincere. I asked him a few questions why he felt it was time and he had obviously thought it out. It’s been obvious to Lorna and I that God has been drawing his heart in close. For our family baptism is about more than merely ‘going public’ with our faith. For us, it is entering into a covenant relationship with God by the invocation of His covenant name, Jesus Christ. Kanaan understands it as a relationship based on a promise that He will always belong to Jesus because he has now taken on His name in baptism. I explained to him that repentance, baptism and the infilling of God’s spirit is us following Jesus in His death on the cross (repentance), burial in the tomb (baptism), and resurrection, (spirit infilling). He is six and he gets it. Now instead of just Wells on the back of his jersey, he wants Wells-Jesus ���� It’s a BEAUTIFUL thing to see and feel. We’ve got 1 down and 2 to go and the other two really need it lol��. Happy Father’s Day!! #kanaancrue #baptism @lornabrittany
