I have happy tears streaming down my face as I’m writing this. My friends, Lan and Chelsea, their sweet little guy, Landon, gave his life to our Lord and Savior. Along with our entire congregation we witnessed Landon show the world that he is saved!
Lan, Landon’s dad, was the one to baptize his son. Seeing Landon look up to his daddy, his hero, the man that is showing him what it looks like to walk in faith and serve Jesus. . .it was so beautiful! Lan and Chelsea, I am so proud of you guys. You are raising your babies so beautifully! It’s inspiring to me and so many others too!
RyAnne, our oldest daughter, recently gave her life to the Lord too. I came across a scripture that I call her’s. In 1 Timothy 4:11-12 is reads:
Command and teach these things. Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
It’s our job as parents to teach our babies what it looks like to walk in faith. If you are struggling with how to do this, Google it. No, I’m not joking with you. Just as you would Google search for the latest and greatest new gadgets and the reviews that go with them, you can do the same thing in regards to more information about how to walk with Jesus.
An even deeper level, would be to find a community! One that will SHOW you how this looks, one that will hold you accountable and keep you on track.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
Landon, I love watching you grow closer to the Lord and share your love of Jesus with others!
