In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe means that anyone who is joined to Immanuel is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come. What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Immanuel were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Immanuel was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Immanuel, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Immanuel, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Romans 6: 1-10 NKJV
SAVED – For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Immanuel to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 8-10 NIV
Titus 3: 3-5 – For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, and wrong. We were slaves to passions and pleasures of all kinds. We spent our lives in malice and envy; others hated us and we hated them. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior was revealed, he saved us. It was not because of any good deeds that we ourselves had done, but because of his own mercy that he saved us, throught the Holy Spirit, who gives us new birth and new life by washing us. GNT
Living by Faith (Your Breath is Life) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe means that you turn from a dead person, into a living person. By our baptism, then, we were buried with Him and share His death, in order that, just as Immanuel was raised from death by the glorious power of the Father, so also we might live a new life. So get rid of your old self, which made you live as you used to – the old self that was being destroyed by its deceitful desires. Your hearts and minds must be made completely new, and you must put on the new self, which is created in God’s likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.
