Yesterday was one of my favorite Sundays of the year. 7 Mile Road Boston had its annual Baptisms. Matt preached briefly from 1 Timothy 6 as Paul charged Timothy to take hold of the eternal life about which he had made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. He was to do this just like Jesus made the good confession before Pontius Pilate. So standing before Pilate and many witnesses, Jesus confessed the truth; that He is Lord. And since then, Timothy, and millions of followers have said, ‘Right! He is Lord.’
3 of our folks gave their confession this Sunday. Standing in a lake, before their church, before a beach filled with hundreds of strangers, before every angel and demon, before all creation, before God in heaven, they declared, “Me too. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”
All of heaven rejoiced. And we did too.
