The Greatest Investment

We went to a Baptism today – a tiny new soul wrapped in white, eyes half shut to the mysteries of life. Surrounded by loving hearts and hands, this innocent one is well on his way to knowing Jesus.

 The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”  31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. 34 The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.      ~Acts 16:31-34

A tiny baby, entrusted to his parents, is given the opportunity to be claimed by Christ, as a priest, prophet, and king. This treasure will be nurtured and grown over the next few decades, until a time that Jesus may say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ (Matthew 25:23) What a worthy investment!
