1. How are we made for relationships and how does this reflect the Creator?

2. How has sin effected our relationships?  Are you aware of how you hide in your relationships with God, others and yourself?

3. Jesus has redeemed our relationships.  How has he done this and as Christians what is our goal in relationships?


God’s chief grace to undeserving sinners is his plan to unite them to his Son…this is the primary meaning of baptism… so Christian baptism is baptism not into any man but into Christ.
– John Stott

Scripture to consider:
–  Rom. 6:3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?

    –  Gal. 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

    –  Rom. 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
