• WHO IS JESUS? HIS BAPTISM

    Bob Hentrich   February 3, 2019


    1 Peter 2:21 reads to this you were called because Christ suffered for you leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps


    Matthew 3:13 reads, then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John


    Acts 2:38 people were told in the streets of Jerusalem by Peter, repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins


    Acts 22:16 Ananias told Paul, arise and be baptized and wash away your sins


    1 Peter 3:21 says that baptism saves us but not by the washing of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clean conscience before God.


    Matthew 3:14 John tried to deter Jesus saying I need to be baptized by you. why do you come to me?


    1. Jesus baptism was a pledge of allegiance to God.


    Romans 10:9 says if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord, you will be saved.


    2. Jesus baptism was a testimony of transition in his life.


    Luke 2:52 says that he increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.


    2 Corinthians 5:17 says if any man is in Christ he is a new creation old things are passed away all things have become new


    Roman 6:1-4 What shall we say then shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase by no means! We died to sin how can we live in it any longer? Don’t you know that all of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

    We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the father we too may live a new life


    Galatians 3:27 says as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.


    3. Jesus was baptized to demonstrate servanthood to man

    • God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble
    • Humble yourself before the Lord and he will lift you up
    • Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall
    • Unless you humble yourself and become like a little child you can’t enter the Kingdom of God

    Matthew 20:27-28 Whoever wants to be first must be your slave Just as the son of man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many


    Ephesians 4:3-6 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.


    Romans 6:3-4 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
