THE BLESSING OF BAPTISM

(Kingdom Service Series)

Sunday Service –  22 May 2022

Romans 6:1-11

1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.5For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6knowing this, that jour old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Difference Between Ordinances & Sacraments

  • A sacraments a right or ritual that is believed to carry inherently in it the distribution divine grace.
  • The sacraments are necessary because they become the only way grace is bestowed on man. Without the sacraments you are without divine grace.
  • Denying a Catholic the sacraments  of the Lord Supper is denying the entrance into grace.
  • There churches that believes that baptism is a way of cleaning sins and cleansing bad luck.
  • That is sacramental system endorses the baptism of children
  • What ever the grace of God is; what ever divine God he want to impart in your life if you limit it to the right of the church; which can only be distributed by human hand; you have now taken the grace of God and put it in human hands; what happens if the does not distribute it.
  • If you believe whatever God wants to do in your life is not limited to human hands you might be TOG.
  • You don’t need baptism as a sacraments to know that you are born again
