CELEBRATING A BURIAL

I think the picture says it all.  Liz shared her story with us, the way that God had brought her to this point in her life.  Today was a public demonstration that the old Liz died and was buried with Christ in his death but the brand new Liz rose up through the waters of baptism to the joy of a new resurrection power-filled life in Christ.

God had the same word to say from different people. Ever creative, Bev had brought her a compass to remind her to follow God closely but his way is always forward, no turning back.  Both George and Dave had the same verse for Liz emphasizing that God has plans for her life:

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Congratulations, Liz, on your baptism and we look forward to watching the excellent plans of God unfold in your life.
