Jehovah Bathes or Cleanses…

However, when the kindness of our Savior, God, and his love for mankind were manifested not because of any righteous works we had done, but because of his own mercy, he saved us by means of the bath that brought us to life and by making us new by holy spirit. 
He poured this spirit out richly on us through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that after being declared righteous through the undeserved kindness of that one, we might become heirs according to a hope of everlasting life.
================================
God ‘bathes,’ or cleanses, anointed Christians in Jesus’ blood, applying the merit of Christ’s ransom sacrifice in their behalf. They are also made new through holy spirit, becoming “a new creation” as spirit-begotten sons of God.
