As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased.” [Matthew 3:16-17]
Our Heavenly Father was quite pleased the moment Jesus was baptized. Andres Bisonni felt the same way the moment he baptized his son, Elijah, in the Jordan River. It is a very unusual opportunity for a child to be baptized by their earthly father. An extraordinary moment between a Father and a son that will melt your heart.
It perfectly represents how God felt the moment He saw Jesus getting baptized through the water. The joy of Andres seeing his child taking a bold step of faith is overwhelming. You can see in his face the gladness that he felt after he baptized his son. Every christian parent dreams of raising children that will also choose to follow and serve God. You can see Andres is beaming with pride that his son made that choice and he got to be a part of it as well.
Andres even said to his son these precious words:
“If I am so happy, if my heart is so full of joy because you are here today, I can’t even imagine how pleased is God with you, how much He rejoices over you.”
Indeed, seeing a father and son moving for the kingdom of God is such an inspiration.
Watch and prepare yourself for this heart melting moment:
