In scripture God presents faith in form of images. Today’s sermon is about these images of faith. Studying them I believe, helps us to understand the nature of faith, its purpose in Christian life and how to exercise it.
My sincere apologies as I couldn’t update this blog on due time. I was down with an ear infection and feverish. I won’t be able to post any updates in the next 2 weeks either because I will be busy with studies. Nevertheless I wanted to leave something worthwhile for my loyal readers to experiment with until I return.
A. Due to inadequate knowledge
A person who dies without getting baptized because of not fully knowing the Lord’s command to do so will not lose his place in heaven. It would be so similarly, if it is due to lack of time prior to death or other practical consideration.
A man walking into church late asked one of the ushers, “Is the sermon done yet?” The usher replied, “The sermon has been preached, but it has yet to be done.” What an answer! The word of God is not just meant to be preached. It’s meant to be practiced. It’s not just meant to be delivered, it’s meant to be done! The book of James gives us a step by step procedure?
A. Those who believe in Jesus as their Saviour and Lord
You should have personally accepted Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, not only as your miracle worker, provider, etc.
John 11:27 “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
This series of lessons is for people who want to know more about Baptism and be prepared for this step in their Christian walk. At the end of the study series, both the student and the teacher would decide if the student is ready to be baptized.
