From the MLJ Archivewith Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Union with Christ Sunday, August 9, 2020
Romans 6:3 - Have you ever been confused or overwhelmed with the different views that surround baptism? Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones breaks down several thoughts or viewpoints concerning baptism including that Catholic and Protestant view. In addition, he also discusses several views within each belief. In Romans 6:3, it almost seems like Paul is stating that our baptism into Christ is baptism in His death like it is common knowledge. Dr. Lloyd-Jones warns that if you are stumbling over specifics in the varying viewpoints, that you could potential miss the glories that baptism represents. The most glorious aspect of baptism is that, as Christians, we are in Christ and He is in us. We were once in Adam and dead because of sin, but our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection is shown through baptism. This means that our final salvation is guaranteed! So whatever viewpoint you hold, we must always acknowledge that we are very literally united with Christ and baptism shows our united nature with Him.
