Babies

This is Mother’s Day weekend and on Every Mother’s Day we have a “Baby Dedication”.  Our “Baby Dedication” is not really a baby dedication, it is a parent dedication. Each set of parents or parent come up on the stage with their baby and I read to them a five fold commitment or promise that they are making to God, to each other, and to their baby. I read what they are committing to do and they respond by saying “I will” or “We will”. God loves commitment, His power flows to commitment, commitment tends to bring the best out in us as we pursue the promise we made. The parents make five detailed commitments such as praying for their baby, reading the Bible to them, and taking them to church.  The desire on the part of each parent is to raise a champion for Jesus, and they all recognize that the job is to big for them to pull off successfully without God.
