Luke 23-24: Burial of Jesus
Practice of baptism
Followed, but not viewed as commanded.
Baptism cannot do:
- it cannot change man's heart, faith does.
- it is not designed to change a mans life, repentance is (Matthew 21:28-32), Acts 3
- it does not remove temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13, James 1:14)
- won't assure us eternal life
What baptism is: (Romans 6:3)
- Walk in newness of life (Colossians 2:12)
- Must keep working, faithful obedience (Revelation 2:10)
- Confession of Christ (1 John 1:9)
