17 Gal. 3:26-28 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

28 What You Must Do! Rom. 6:3-5 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
29 What You Must Do!  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection
30 What You Must Do! If you will do these things, then you become a new creature in Christ Jesus and start on the road to heaven
31 What You Must Do! You must continue faithful until death, and heaven will be yours on the resurrection day You will be in your eternal home with God and the saved of all the ages
