Text: Galatians 3:26-29 "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28.

And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death (death of my will): 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."
Romans 6:11 "Likewise reckon [present middle] ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive [present active] unto God through [Christ Jesus, word order] Jesus Christ our Lord."
Ephesians 4:22-29 "That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27. Neither give place to the devil. 28. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
Philippians 2:5-9 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6. Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7. But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8. And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death (thanatos in the garden), even [also] the death of the cross. 9. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:"
Romans 13:11-14 "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof."
Galatians 3:28 "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."
Colossians 3:10-14 "And have put on [middle voice] the new man, which is renewed [present passive] in knowledge [deeper knowledge] after the image of him that created him: 11. Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all. 12. Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13. Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 14. And above all these things put on charity [love], which is the bond of perfectness."
Galatians 3:29 "And if ye be [of] Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
Galatians 4:1-3 "Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2. But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. 3. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
Galatians 4:4-6 "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5. To redeem them (children) that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption [sonship] of sons. 6. And because ye (that have put on Christ) are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father."
