Come let us Grow Together is a weekly series that deals with the many topical categories that exist within the Word of God.  The purpose of this series is to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding in things pertaining to God.

Have your sins been remitted?

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Mt 26:28)

Jesus instructs his disciples to preach repentance and remission of sins in his name beginning at Jerusalem….

Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. (Lk 24:45-47)

How we receive remission of our sins….

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:38-39)

The New Testament Covenant:

Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. (Heb 10:15-18)

To partake of the New Testament Covenant one must be born again of water and of the Spirit as Jesus instructed Nicodemus.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (Jn 3:4-6)

We enter into the New Testament Covenant when we are born again of water and of the Spirit.  This is fulfilled by believing in Jesus Christ and then obeying what Jesus told his disciples to preach to the people.  Which was repentance and remission of sins in his name beginning at Jerusalem.

When the day of Pentecost was fully come the Holy Ghost was poured out and the people began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them the utterance.  The Apostle Peter with the other eleven Apostles brought forth the message of what we must do to fulfill being born again of water and of the Spirit.  The Apostle Peter brought forth the message that Jesus had instructed him to bring forth.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:38-39)
