When I became a Christian at 30, I was baptized and began walking in a new life. Surrendering the old one to the world and began to follow and applying the principals of God, through the writings in the Holy Word and lived out by the power of the Holy Spirit. One of my big concerns was for my husband's salvation. This passage was a comfort to me. A short time later he chose to be baptized also for the remission of his sins.
Because of God's mercy, we were able to raise our children in a Christian home. We gave them a foundation on which to build their lives centered on Christ. I love the verse that says that our children are holy. So keep that in mind when you are at your 'wits end' after a LONG day.
You are raising God's holy children with your holy spouse!
Isn't God good!!!
