The baptism of an infant is the perfect topic to help us understand the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how we are all saved by God’s grace alone. You should love infant baptism. Every time there is a baptism of a baby in your church, you should sing for joy over what God is doing for that little one. He is making a sinner into His beloved child by His grace alone. He is granting faith. He is forgiving sin. He is rescuing from death and the devil. He is imparting His Spirit. He is covering a sinner with Christ’s righteousness. He is promising eternal salvation. He is doing all this and more! In fact, Infant baptism even helps us understand adult baptism. Rejoice with us in God’s salvation of sinners by grace alone, through faith alone, for Christ’s sake alone, by coming to the Confirmation Retreat as we explore the treasures of baptism!
