Luke’s Dedication

At the end of April, we had the privilege of dedicating Luke at Newport Mesa Church.  The purpose of a baby dedication is two fold.  First, it is us, the parents, publically saying that we intend to raise Luke with Biblical, Christian foundations and guidance and, secondly, it’s the church saying that they will support and encourage us in that endeavor.  The life verse that we choose for Luke is Matthew 11:12 “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.”  It is our hope that Luke one day chooses for himself to follow Christ and accepts his forgiveness and salvation and that he becomes one of those “forceful” or purposeful men who aggressively strives after the kingdom of heaven.

We were so happy that my parents were able to join us!
