See Jesus - Baptism - QICF
Jason Harvelon 1 April 2014
Transcript of See Jesus - Baptism - QICF
"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them..."
"Repent and be baptized"
Its never offered as an option - always a command.
Ephesians 4 Unity in the Body of Christ
3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. 4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. 5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all.
Two kinds of Baptism
2)spirit and fire
I peter 3
(speaking of how Noah was saved from the flood)
21 And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as
a response to God from a clean conscience.
It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Baptism is a picture of the gospel of Christ.
The Picture of my kids is not my kids. It is a representation of my kids that has happened in the past.
IF a baptism is happening, that person has already made Jesus their Lord, and died to their sin.
I believe, in Jesus, but I don't want to be identified with him....
I believe in Jesus, but I don't want to be united with him....
does this make sense?
there is no mention of an unbaptized believer in the new testament
1. follow the example of Christ
2. obey the command of Christ
3. unite with the body of Christ
4. Identify yourself with Jesus
5. celebrate the death of sin in your life
If Jesus was sinless - why did he need baptised?
why does a sinless person need to repent?
salvation is faith alone.
NOT faith + baptism.
The Almighty All Loving Gracious God of this universe has:
cleansed you from all your sin
delivered you from sin and
given you life with him and
adopted you into his family
why would you not want to identify with HIM?
if baptism is not about jesus, its just getting wet.
What was Baptism
in Jesus' day?
First seen with Solomon's temple - the bath
Self-baptism - no one else in the water
for the purpose of :
24 Then the Pharisees who had been sent 25 asked him, “If you aren’t the Messiah or Elijah or the Prophet, what right do you have to baptize?”
Sin’s Power Is Broken
Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? 2 Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? 3 Or have you forgotten that when we were
joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?
4 For we
died and were buried with Christ by baptism
. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
15 But Jesus said, “It should be done, for we must carry
out all that God requires.
” So John agreed to baptize him.
16 After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”
John the Baptist John the Disciple
Repent = change ways: to feel regret about a sin or past actions and change your ways or habits
sin = an action which separates you from God.
confess = admission of guilt: a voluntary written or verbal statement admitting the commission of a crime
Baptize= rite of purification, usually by application of water. Often performed as an initiation into the Christian Church.
all that God requires= *see rest of sermon.
right now you are probably thinking one of the below:
Why would anyone get in a river to receive forgiveness?
Weren't the Jews supposed to offer a lamb to get forgiveness?
Wasn't Jesus perfect? What is he getting forgiven of?
What IS everything that God requires?
What was the dove show for?
Salvation = the event of God graciously rescuing a person from the consequences of their sin (separation from God).
This is a result of the person putting their faith in God's ability to rescue and adopt them in to his family/kingdom.
God was also "fulfilling all righteousness"
After identifying himself, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as the three in one God, which was completly involved in providing a way to rescue mankind from the consequences of its sin...
Check the caliber on that list...
Baptism unites us to the body of Christ.
When you come to Christ and get baptized, not only do you get Christ,
but you get us too =)
36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”
38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
Acts 8:12 Philip baptizes new believers
Acts 8:36 Philip baptizes the Ethiopian Eunuch
Acts 9:18 Paul gets baptized as soon as he can see
Acts 10:48 Peter baptizes new believers
Acts 16:14-16 Lydia gets baptized
Acts 18:8 Justus, Crispus, and his family get baptized
Acts 19:4-6 Paul baptizes some of Johns disciples
26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ,
like putting on new clothes.
28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
3 In those days
John the Baptist
came to the Judea
wilderness and began preaching. His message was, 2 “
Repent of your sins
and turn to God, for the
Kingdom of Heaven is near
.” 3 The prophet Isaiah was speaking about John when he said,
The Baptism of Jesus
“He is a voice shouting in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming!
Clear the road for him!’”
4 John’s clothes were woven from coarse camel hair, and he wore a leather belt around his waist. For food he ate locusts and wild honey. 5 People from Jerusalem and from all of Judea and all over the Jordan Valley went out to see and hear John. 6
And when they confessed their sins, he baptized them
in the Jordan River.
13 Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to talk him out of it. “I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,” he said, “so why are you coming to
The point of being unclean wasn't to force people into constant washing and sacrifice - it was to show us that we are determined to rebel and therefore are in constant need of God's grace in order to stay in relationship with Him.
purity after becoming ceremonially unclean
rebirth into a new role: marriage, bar-mitzvah, conversion from gentile to Judaism, anointing as priest or king
Look at Luke 3
3 Then John went from place to place on both sides of the Jordan River, preaching that people should be baptized to show that they
of their sins and turn
to God to be forgiven.
go under water - come out of the water - get out of the pool
Jesus dies - then He defeats death - then he offers us life.
When you get baptized, you go underwater, you can't survive there - you would die BUT...
...you don't stay there long..
Why? Because Jesus didn't stay dead long.
Then you get out of the pool and go home.
Why? because life continues to happen.
This is a celebration in which God makes a public spectacle of the defeat of sin
Jesus is identifying baptism to himself.
He is identifying his death and resurrection as the fulfillment of righteousness.
He is giving us a way to identify ourselves to himself through baptism.
He is identifying himself, God, and the Holy Spirit as active members of our salvation.
its not weird that Jesus is identifying himself as a person who is about to "fulfill all righteousness" - because he had. every day of his life.
In fact, he did it the hard way. By actually being perfect.
Also, remember the picture.
c) "what? that doesn't make any sense!!!"
b) what it must have looked like for the holy spirit to descend out of heaven in a dove-like form
a) about something unrelated
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the
Holy Spirit and fire.
36 “What is your request?” he asked.
37 They replied, “When you sit on your glorious throne, we want to sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left.”38 But Jesus said to them,
“You don’t know what you are asking! Are you able to drink from the bitter cup of suffering I am about to drink? Are you able to be baptized with the baptism of suffering I must be baptized with?”
we KINDA do this
when i decided to ask Sara to marry me, I had a ring made
I flew to Thailand to ask her to marry me... after a few minor questions she said yes!
from the time she put the ring on - she was identifying herself with a new "Harvel" identity that she was going to embrace later that year.
Jesus creates a strongly symbolic way for himself and us to be identified together before the actual event of his death.
does not happen when the water baptism happens, but when the spirit baptism happens. Baptism is an
21 From then on Jesus began to tell his disciples plainly that it was necessary for him to go to Jerusalem, and that he would suffer many terrible things at the hands of the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He would be killed, but on the third day he would be raised from the dead.
22 But Peter took him aside and began to reprimand him for saying such things.
“Heaven forbid, Lord,”
he said. “This will never happen to you!”
23 Jesus turned to Peter and said, “Get away from me, Satan!
Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him.
6 When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
7 Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”
8 “No,” Peter protested, “
you will never ever wash my feet!
Jesus replied, “Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.”
...for Jesus, his baptism is not just a clear picture of his death and resurrection -- its a dress rehearsal.
Think of how John tried to avoid being baptized by Jesus - does this remind you of anything?
God expressed pleasure in his son
who would die for you and me, be come back from the dead, and finally rule as our Lord and Savior.
