"Baptized into Christ..."
Text: Galatians 3:27
THE SIGN OF THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT
God gave a special sign to Abraham that would confirm the validity of His covenant with him and his descendants. That sign was known as “circumcision” (Genesis 17).
1. This was clearly stated as “a sign of the covenant” (Genesis 17:11).
2. This sign established the covenant between God and the descendants of Abraham (Genesis 17:7)
THE SIGN OF THE NEW COVENANT AS SONS OF GOD
What was the sign of the new covenant relationship between God and those who have faith in Christ?
For as many of you as were baptized into Christ
have put on Christ.
