Dear Friends, One of the most exciting events in the life of any church is baptism Sunday! Baptism is an outward sign of an inward transformation: an eternal soul has come to love God through the Gospel and is transformed by his love.
In Luke 15:10, Jesus comments on the joy in heaven over the salvation of a soul: "Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Most people interpret the verse to mean the angels in heaven are rejoicing over the salvation of each sinner. No doubt the angels are rejoicing; but the text says there is "joy before the angels of God." The text isn't emphasizing the angels' joy; it's emphasizing God's joy!! God's heart rejoices over each salvation and our's should too!
Join Mosaic tomorrow as we celebrate baptism! Since we don't have a way of holding baptisms in the Regal movie theater, we'll hold the baptism in the evening service in Allston.
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
