Part 2 Lesson 9 SMALL CATECHISM 1.What is Baptism? 2.What benefits does God give in Baptism? 3.How can water do such great things? 4.What does Baptism mean for daily living?
It’s NOT the Water. It’s always about THE WORD
Have you ever been asked, Usually this question is asked by someone who thinks that infant Baptism is not REAL Baptism. There are some who believe that a person must make a conscience decision to be baptized because the Holy Spirit has come to them. As Lutherans, we believe there is only ONE BAPTISM.
Baptism gives me new life. Baptism gives me a new relationship with the world around me. THAT HAS IMPLICATIONS FOR HOW I LIVE!
Baptism makes a difference in how we live. Because we are “born in Christ” we should want to serve God and obey His will.
We become a part of GOD’s CHURCH. It doesn’t matter what church we belong to because there is only ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM. CHRIST UNITES US ALL!
This is a fancy way of saying that we need to be return for the time when Christ returns, as He promised. Believing that truth, it means I should be concerned about where my life is headed.
We are commanded by God to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and make disciples. We have a Mission! We are NOT all pastors, but we are ALL ministers. The mission of sharing Christ is for all believers.
When we are confirmed and take an active role in the church, it means we answer God’s call to share Christ with others. Talk to your parents about ways they share the good news of Jesus Christ with others as ministers in God’s Church. Talk to them about their understanding of what a minister is and what a pastor is. Then write down your thoughts and theirs about these two roles in spreading God’s Word and making disciples. Also share some ways that you will share Christ with others.
