So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.
1 Corinthians 15:22 again:
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands—remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ
that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross
For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
It is a requirement for certainty of faith that everyone is fully convinced that he is included with those to whom God is speaking. This is the rule of a genuine faith; then I am sure that salvation is mine because this is the promise offered to me.

Community Group Questions
Read Acts 2:38–39. To whom is the promise of the gospel extended?
For your time together this week I would ask you to spend the remainder of your time in an intentional time in prayer and conversation about how you can engage together in mission in the coming year. I would encourage you to interweave your time with conversation and prayer.
On Sunday Jeremiah encouraged each person to arrange a time for a coffee or lunch with another partner or household at CPCoast to talk together about what you think God might be doing to move you even further into mission. If you haven’t already, consider arranging a time to meet with someone from your Community Group to continue the conversation.
