It’s always been His plan—for us to live in Christ.
To rid our hearts of violence—and fill us with His goodness.
To escape the floods of death—and save us through His life.
To divorce our affections for momentary stuff—and establish an everlasting covenant with us.
To show us the way out of misery—and enter His holy sanctuary.
“There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
