GOD Rom 3:23 NIV...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Isa 59:2 NIV But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. Eph 4:18...separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. Sin Separates from God
Acts 2:23 NIV This man was handed over to you by God's set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. Eph 2:13 & 16 NIV But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ....16 and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. Col 1:20 NIV and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Col 2:14-15 NIV having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. The Cross and Jesus Blood
John 19:34 NIV... one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 1 John 5:6 & 8 NIV This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth....8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. Acts 22:16 NIV And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.' 1 Cor 6:11 NIV... But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. Blood and Water The Cross and New Testament Baptism Rom 6:3 NIV Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? SIN
Acts 2:38 NIV Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Purpose of New Testament Baptism (Col 2:11-13 NIV) In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, SIN
