As a child, Jesus was brought by Joseph and Mary to the house of the Lord. This was an act of dedication and recognition that He really belonged to God.
Throughout His ministry, people brought children to Jesus and He placed His hands on each of them, and blessed them.
Christians are to recognize that everything we have belongs to God. The children that are born to our homes belong to Him as well.
This dedication is not the salvation of the child, but is a public expression of the fact that they belong to Him. This “setting apart” is an act by the parents prayerfully declaring that this child belongs to God. The parents are to seek to do everything that is in their power, as God gives them wisdom, to see that the child grows up to respect and honor God, and to love and serve Jesus Christ.
We encourage parent to bring their children to Sunday Celebrations and dedicate their children to the Lord.
