A big thanks goes to those who came on our little one’s dedication last March 6, 2011. Thank you Pastor Garry for officiating the said event. Bro. Win, Kuya Allan and the whole NCCM Family for the assistance. My sister for helping me organize the event and to all secondary parents, officemates and friends, Thank You Very Much! Above all thank you Lord for the privilege of dedicating a child to You.
I believe that children are gift from God. And the Bible said so, “children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” Psalms 127:3. As a believer, we are to recognize that children first and foremost belong to God. This is the reason why it is important to dedicate a child to the Lord. The act of dedication acknowledges the sovereignty of the Lord over the child’s life as well as parent’s lives. It is the act of giving back to the Lord what is due to Him. Just like what Hannah did, when she presented Samuel to the Lord. Read 1 Samuel chapter 1.
Presenting Baby Z to the Lord gives us divine assurance that one day; he will surely trust the Lord and accepts Him as his own personal savior. And as we watch him grow and wait for that day, we are comforted by the fact that God’s loving arms is upon him. That he is covered by the blood of Jesus and shielded by His mighty wings. On the other hand, as a parent, we have claimed the grace and wisdom in carrying out our responsibilities. It is our great desire to see him grow serving and honoring the Lord in great reverence.
