Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:3-4 ESV)
Неужели не знаете, что все мы, крестившиеся во Христа Иисуса, в смерть Его крестились? Итак мы погреблись с Ним крещением в смерть, дабы, как Христос воскрес из мертвых славою Отца, так и нам ходить в обновленной жизни. (К Римлянам 6:3-4 Russian)
O LORD my God, my heart is joyful on this new day because I am putting my trust in the way you preserve the lives of all saints around the world – especially this who are undergoing persecution for confessing faith in your beloved Son. Bless all people in the world with a fresh opportunity to hear and understand the fullness of your grace and forgiveness that is available to everyone. Help everyone who teaches the gospel to magnify the act of water baptism that is a clear picture of our own spiritual death, burial and resurrection. Reveal the deceptiveness of those who dare to make null and void the obedient response of a new and repentant believer in Christ as Lord who desires to be baptized into Christ. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
