Baptized in Christ
What does it mean to be baptized in Christ?
First, to try our best to do the very best we can in everything we attempt. Second, when we blow it (and we all blow it), to realize and claim the forgiving love of God and to know we are forever united with Christ Jesus.
Scriptures related to baptism:
Leviticus chapter 14 - deals with being cleansed before Christ.
Exodus 29:1-4 - deals with making God's priests Holy.
Matthew 3:1-17, Luke 3:10-17 - Christ being baptized by John
