You Have to Die to Live!

You Have to Die to Live! Romans 6:1-4 Main Point: Baptism symbolizes death to our old sinful life, and rising into the new life we receive from Christ which we now live through His indwelling Spirit. What baptism is not… -It is not a means of Grace (Infant baptism) -Baptism does not save you - Titus 3:4-5 > I Peter 3:21 It is part of our discipleship. #1. The Command of Baptism: Acts 2:38 This statement came is response to… Matt. 28:19 Make disciples by ‘going, baptizing, teaching…’ Apostles were following thru w/ Jesus’ command/commission Matt. 3:13-17 Jesus was baptized - gave us a pattern to follow. #2. The Significance of Baptism: Romans 6:1-4 P – Picture - of our union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection I - Identification - we are identified publicly as a disciple/follower of Jesus Christ, and as a member of His Body C – Commitment - we are committing, consecrating ourselves to follow Jesus Christ for the rest of our lives *It is the outward sign of the inner work X has done!
