Title: God Uses Water


1
God Uses Water
2
A World of Water
  • Man is 2/3 water 60 of our weight 2 ½ gallons
    of drinking water is needed each day to live
    80-100 gallons per person for daily activities
    128 million gallons are used for crop irrigation
    each day in the US alone. It is most necessary
    for living.

A World of Water
  • The earths surface is 71 water 140 million sq.
    miles of oceans (330 million cubic miles of
    water, 96 of the earths water) always used,
    but never used up. It is most necessary for our
    environment. About 350,000 gallons of water is
    needed to grow 1 acre of corn. About 112 gallons
    passes through a full grown oak tree each day.

4
Water and the Bible
  • You all believe in water salvation. This
    statement is often made by our religious friends.
    They imply that they are saved by grace / faith
    alone, and that we are saved by works water. 1
    Corinthians 114-17 is misused to show that water
    baptism is not that important in Gods plan.

5
Water and the Bible
  • The issue is this We are saved by Gods plan and
    if that plan includes water (among other things),
    then I must submit to that plan of water (Lk.
    729-30)
  • If baptism is not used by God to join the
    church, and if it is not used by God to show
    that you are already saved, then how does God
    use it?
  • Let us examine four purposes of water in Gods
    plan of salvation

6
God Uses Water
  • For Salvation from Judgment
  • Examples Gen.6-7 (1 Pet.320 Heb.117) -- Noah
    and his family were saved by water because it
    took them away from the death and destruction
    of the entire world (Gen.720-24 2 Pet.35-6)
  • It should be no surprise to find in the NT that
    baptism saves (Mk.1616 1 Pet.
    321)

7
God Uses Water
  • For Separation from An Old Life
  • Examples Ex. 1410-31 - The Israelites separated
    from Egyptian bondage and Josh. 314-17 - the
    Israelites separated from the wilderness
    wandering
  • It should be no surprise to find in the NT that
    baptism is the dividing point, or point of
    separation, between the old life of sin, and new
    life of salvation (Rom. 61-4)

8
God Uses Water
  • For Restoration from Death
  • Examples 2 K. 51-14 - Naamans skin was
    restored after washing (Lk. 427) Jn. 91-7 -
    The blind mans sight was restored after washing
  • It should be no surprise to find in the NT that
    the act of baptism puts us into a new, restored
    relationship (Mt. 2819 Jn. 35 1 Cor. 1213
    Gal. 327 Col. 212)

9
God Uses Water
  • For Purification - from Sin
  • Examples Num.199, 21 - The unclean Israelites
    would be purified (cleansed) with water
  • It should be no surprised to find in the NT that
    baptism purifies (makes clean by washing) by
    washing away sins (Ac. 238 2216
    Eph.526 Heb.1022)

10
God Uses Water
  • We have no right to forbid the water of baptism
    to anyone who is in need of it (Ac.1047). The
    Eunuch was not hindered by the water of baptism
    (Ac.836-39), and neither should we be hindered.
  • Yes, God uses water! Will you let God save you,
    separate you, restore you, and purify you, with
    water today? Salvation is on the other side of
    the water!
