Any time you ask a question in a sermon title, you better have a short answer. And this is it: Because of the promise of God, and the Command of Christ.
That's it. God has promised the blessings of salvation sealed in baptism to us, and to our children, and Christ's great commission puts at the heart of the mission of the church to be going to make disciples, to be baptizing, and to be teaching...
In Baptism, God shows us how he saves sinners. He washes them of their sins, not with water, but through the blood of the cross. And, God seals that promise to particular sinners. He takes instruments, tools in his hands, and applies his promise to this child ‚ÄĒ the church, the minister, and the water are servants of our God, who takes us in his hand to communicate all the blessings of salvation to this child.
