For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.  Galatians 3:26-27 (NAS) 

Through baptism, we are buried with Christ...and into His death, where His blood was shed.

Summary of God's Covenants with Abraham and Moses, and New Covenant
God's Covenant With: Ratified by Blood?* Sign of the Covenant
1. Abraham Yes, animals were cut in two and they passed between the cut animals, a turtledove and pigeon (Genesis 15:8-10). Circumcision (Genesis 17:11)
2. Moses and the children of Israel: The Law of Moses Yes, after law was given to Moses, he sprinkled the blood of animals (young bulls) on the people (Exodus 24:8) Observing the Sabbath (Exodus 31:12-17)
3. All Men - Jews and Gentiles: The New Covenant* Yes, with the blood of Christ who was crucified on the cross (Hebrews 9:24-26).  Believers are baptized or immersed in water...spiritually being immersed into Christ and into His death.   

*Also called the New Testament or the Law of Christ (Galatians 6:2, 1Corinthians 9:21).

Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection, Romans 6:3-5 (NAS)
