Sermon: Lent 1 Midweek Matthew 28:16-20

Lenten Midweek Series


A Six Week Meditation on the Sacrament of Holy Baptism

Thought for the Day from Bulletin Cover:

            In the first place, you must note in these words (Mt. 28:19, Mk. 16:16) that here stand God’s commandment and institution.  Let us not doubt that Baptism is divine.  It is not made up or invented by people.  For as surely as I can say, “No one has spun the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer out of his head; they are revealed and given by God Himself.”  So also I can boast that Baptism is no human plaything, but is instituted by God himself.

Large Catechsim, Part IV, paragraph 6

Small Catechism Responsive Reading:

P:  What is Baptism?

C:  Baptism is not just plain water, but it is the water included in God’s command and combined with God’s Word.

P:  Which is this Word of God?

C:  Christ our Lord says in the last Chapter of Matthew:  “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” (Mt. 28:19)
