Baptism Party?

baptism1

Sometimes I feel like an angel peering into God’s kingdom seeing and learning from his people what true love and joy in Jesus is all about.  A few  Sundays ago, I attended a baptism party for nine people who had been baptized earlier that day.  I have never heard of that in all my years of being around the church.  But, man, I really saw what a taste of heaven was going to be like.  These people wanted to celebrate their BAPTISM so much that they threw a party for seventy-five people.  They cooked all sorts of food and had all kinds of desserts.  They were also SERVING the food as well.  The question popped in my mind:  “Who gets baptized and actually throws a party to celebrate?”  I mean they didn’t win any awards.  They didn’t graduate from college.  It wasn’t their birthday. I feel like Jesus gently rebuked me and said, “those who really feel like they have something to celebrate will celebrate.” “I took them from death to life.”
