Or are ye ignorant that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Romans 6.3. 

When we are baptized we are baptized into Christ—not our merely being baptized in water but being baptized into Christ. According to the last clause in Romans 6.3 (“were baptized into his death”), the water of baptism spoken of in that verse points to death. But according to the first clause of the same verse (“were baptized into Christ Jesus”), the water also refers to Christ. Frequently we look to God for a cup of water. No, God wants us to enter into Christ. If we are clear on this point, we shall know that it is not a matter of we ourselves; it is instead Christ, and all things are in Him.
