For we live by faith, not by sight. — 2 Corinthians 5:7
Symbolically buried and risen to life with Christ, Michael and Megan Mason were each baptized on November 13, 2022. Although both Michael and Megan have been following Jesus for many years now, they've recently made the decision to make their public declaration of faith through their own baptisms. We're so excited for what God has done and will continue to do in their lives.
Michael had a feeling that many of us can identify with: it can be uncomfortable to be baptized as we get older. Yet, his decision was based on his desire to obey his God's commands: "If Jesus was the Son of God, and if He commanded that I, as a believer, should be baptized, I think it will be a weak defense to stand in front of Him one day and claim cowardice as my excuse for disobedience."
For years, Megan delayed getting baptized because a clear time never presented itself, and it felt like others may have had grander catalysts than hers. Today, she's decided the time is now to give Him the glory. She tells us, "Being baptized is my way of demonstrating my obedience and trust in Him, glorifying Him, hopefully as an example for my kids and my family."
