Henry was baptized yesterday. I'll upload a picture later but here's the blessing Rick gave him:
Your mother and I have brought you before the congregation of God's people today in obedience to Our LORD's commands. May Our God open your eyes enabling you to see His Kingdom and enter it with rejoicing and thanksgiving while seeking to be obedient to God all the days of your life. We named you Henry for several reasons. One of those reasons is because it means "Home Ruler". We pray that our heavenly father will grant you a family over which you will have spiritual responsibility, and that you will find great joy in overseeing the spiritual building of God's kingdom.
In I Chronicles David encouraged his son Solomon as he endeavored to build an earthly physical temple for God, and as I hope to see God use you in building His kingdom, I want to encourage you with the words of David recorded in I Chronicles 28:20 when he says:
"Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished."
Henry, Your mother and I hope the LORD grants you His salvation and never leaves you until He finishes that work in you. May you seek to be perfect as your father in heaven is perfect all the days of your life while you work out your salvation and live to honor and magnify the name of the God of heaven. And finally, may you fully understand the depth of our love for you and know that we thank God for you.
