As a parent, it is good that you are considering the opportunity to participate in an Infant/Child Dedication Service. We applaud your devotion to your child. As you contemplate this event, please consider the following. Look up the Bible passages and contemplate how they relate to what you are considering.
 

 

1. Psalm 24:1 says that the world and all who dwell in it belong to the Lord. Dedicating your child to the Lord is really acknowledging that your child belongs to Him.

2. Psalm 127 says that it is absolutely useless to try to raise children without Jesus at the center. By dedicating your child to Him, you’re acknowledging this.
3. Psalm 127 also says that children are a gift from God. Literally, they are a reward. As with all things in life, by dedicating your child to Jesus you are acknowledging his goodness expressed in giving you children.
4. In Psalm 139:13-18, we learn that each child is uniquely designed by God for his purposes and pleasure. In dedicating your child to the Lord, you are devoting yourself to help your child discover their God given uniqueness and destiny.
5. Two examples of parents dedicating children in the Bible are found in 1 Samuel 1 and Luke 2:22. Before dedicating your child to Jesus, read these accounts and ask the Lord to clarify why you should participate in this ceremony.
