Water Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ The Who, When, Why, and How of Water Baptism

Id like to start our study this week which is abut baptism with Col. 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.

Everything we do must be done by authority Jesus' Christ 1 Why do we need Christ authorization to everything we do? Read about it in 2 Timothy 3:17 So the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

2 What does baptism mean? Do you get of the old easy go to answer? The word baptism means to immerse fully. Which is true. But I want to dig a little deep. Can I share with you what I found? Thoughout my studies over the years. I found that the primary meaning of the verb baptizein which is Greek. Its meaning is from the perception in the first Person. Because I can not decide it is time for you to be baptized. Only you can decide that.

We also get (βαπτίζω baptizô), from the English verb "baptize". And means to, "dip, plunge. Just like when dipping a cup in the bowl. The New Testament gives two meanings: "baptize", with which it associates the Naaman dipping himself in the Jordan River, 2 Kings 5:14

In other words Baptism is simply the means of spiritual renewal and initial justification and sanctification through the infusion of grace received in it, in such a way that one cannot be saved without it. Baptism is a public testimony to one's faith in Jesus Christ.

3 Who may be baptized? Believers may be baptized, as in: Mark 16:16 John 3:1-47 Acts 2:38 Matthew 28:18-20

OK God bless and each every reader is my prayers.
