Transcript

  • 1. Because We Were Baptized
  • 2. Baptism • Baptism = immersion in water • By a repentant believer in Jesus • For the forgiveness of their sins • Some results of baptism are immediate • Other results are long-term
  • 3. Because we were baptized : • We walk in newness of life Romans 6:4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
  • 4. Because we were baptized : • We are transformed Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
  • 5. Because we were baptized : • There should be unity • Ephesians 4:4-6 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
  • 6. Because we were baptized : • There should be unity 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free--and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. Galatians 3:26-27 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
  • 7. Because we were baptized : • We worship God Acts 2:41-42 41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
  • 8. Because we were baptized : • We study the Bible 1 Peter 2:2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,
  • 9. Because we were baptized : • We study the Bible Hebrews 5:12-14 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
  • 10. Because we were baptized : • We obey the commands of Christ • Great Commission Mark 16:15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature Luke 24:47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
  • 11. Because we were baptized : • We seek things abov • Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. • New goals • How to please Christ • New direction for our life
  • 12. Because we were baptized : • We abandon sin 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
  • 13. Because we were baptized : • We abandon sin • 2 Corinthians 6:17 Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you." • Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
  • 14. Because we were baptized : • Baptism is more than forgiveness of sins • Baptism is more than becoming a Christian • Because we were baptized we make changes in our lifestyle, behavior, and thinking. • Have you been baptized? • How are you living because you were baptized?
