The Benefits of a Boring Testimony
We had a baptismal service at church last week, and afterwards Katie, my 10-year-old, mentioned something interesting.

The pastor had asked anybody who wanted to be baptized (we're in a believer-baptism tradition church) to talk to him after the service. Katie said this:

"I really felt like I should go talk to Pastor Ernie, but then I remembered that when you're baptized you have to tell your story. I don't have much of a story yet, so I think I'll wait until I'm twelve."

To which I replied,

"And just what are you planning on doing in the next year and a half?"

I wonder if I should be worried.

that is pretty funny...

but on a serious note...I felt the same way. i accepted Christ at the age of 5 and it seemed like at summer camp everyone else had these AMAZING stories of repentence when I hadn't done so much as steal a cookie from the cookie jar.

then I realized...

Jesus's "testimony" was completely INNOCENT and Sinless. I was by far not SINLESS or completely INNOCENT...but because of His spotless life it made me feel proud of my extremely simple and event-free testimony.

not sure if that makes does in my head but that doesn't mean it does otherwise. :-)

That was SO funny :)

Sometimes I just can't wait for my Bubbalu to start talking...then sometimes I realize I should enjoy the silence while I can ;)
