2 The Great Commission Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. -Matt 28:18-20

12 The Great Commission and Luke 3 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them - Matt 28 John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him - Luke 3:7

13 What does it mean to be baptized?

14 Baptism is a personal and public identification with Jesus Christ Baptism is an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer s life

15

16 The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: A voice of one calling in the wilderness, Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God s salvation. Luke 3:2-6

17 John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, We have Abraham as our father. For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Luke 3:7-9

18 The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Messiah. John answered them all, I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. And with many other words John exhorted the people and proclaimed the good news to them. Luke 3:15-18

19 Luke 3:1-22 A New Baptism 1. A baptism of Attitude 2. A baptism of Action 3. A baptism of Autonomy

20 Luke 3:1-22 A New Baptism 1. A baptism of Attitude 2. A baptism of Action 3. A baptism of Autonomy

21 The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Luke 3:2,7

22 400 Silent Years: Woes of Messiah I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come, says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? Malachi 3:1-2

23 A Threat to Authority And do not begin to say to yourselves, We have Abraham as our father. For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham Luke 3:8

24 Baptism, next to circumcision and sacrifice, was an absolutely necessary condition to be fulfilled by a proselyte to Judaism

25 If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless. But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Phil 3: 4-8

26 In what do we put our confidence?

27 Are you ready to consider all a loss for the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus?

28 Luke 3:1-22 A New Baptism 1. A baptism of Attitude 2. A baptism of Action 3. A baptism of Autonomy

29 John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Luke 3:7-9

30 This is how Aaron is to enter the Most Holy Place He is to put on the sacred linen tunic. These are sacred garments; so he must bathe himself with water before he puts them on. - Lev 16:3-4 The person to be cleansed must wash their clothes, shave off all their hair and bathe with water; then they will be ceremonially clean. - Lev 14:8

31 Are we just ceremonially clean?

34 Repentance and

35 Producing Fruit But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Gal 5:22-23

36 Luke 3:1-22 A New Baptism 1. A baptism of Attitude 2. A baptism of Action 3. A baptism of Autonomy

37 John answered them all, I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire Luke 3:15-16

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. Acts 2:38

39 I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5

40 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:7-8

41 Jesus, take the wheel Take it from my hands Cause I can t do this on my own I m letting go So give me one more chance And save me from this road I m on. - Jesus, Take the Wheel Carrie Underwood

42 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20

43 Luke 3:1-22 A New Baptism 1. A baptism of Attitude 2. A baptism of Action 3. A baptism of Autonomy
