#12 in the Bible Marginalia Series
1 Peter 3: 21
The flood is a figure of Baptism.
in each case, water saves.
The world was cleansed when Noah
and his family were lifted up by the flood.
Baptism cleanses us and raises us to new life.
By grace, Baptism is a means of salvation
through which the Holy Spirit produces faith.
We are forgiven and holy because of Christ.
That forgiveness is applied to us in Baptism.
The life we are given in Baptism
was earned by Christ.
