A funny video of a kid who couldn’t wait too long, and decided to baptize himself out of excitement is trending on social media.
The Bible speaks of a child-like faith in God and Jesus emphasized this kind of faith when he said “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it” (Mark 10:14-15).
On Sunday, when 6-year-old Jordan Warrick was waiting his turn to get baptized at the West End Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, he decided to take the plunge after the pastor was taking way too long.
Jordan decided to go ahead and baptize himself as his parents, pastor and the entire congregation watched on in delight. The video has gone absolutely viral on Facebook getting hundreds of thousands of shares and millions of views in just one day.
This full immersion is vital to the word of God regarding baptism, which demonstrates that our sins and transgressions have been forgiven by God when we go under and rise again from the water to a new life of salvation.
