Genesis 1:26–27; Matthew 3:16–17; Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 2:18; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2

26 Then God said, oLet us make man1 in our image, pafter our likeness. And qlet them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.

27  So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

rmale and female he created them.


16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, othe heavens were opened to him,1 and he psaw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, qa voice from heaven said, rThis is my beloved Son,2 with whom I am well pleased.


19 jGo therefore and kmake disciples of lall nations, jbaptizing them min1 nthe name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,


18 For athrough him we both have baccess in cone Spirit to the Father.


14 iThe grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and jthe love of God and kthe fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.


according to bthe foreknowledge of God the Father, cin the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and dfor sprinkling with his blood:

May egrace and fpeace be multiplied to you.
