Saved with a new life

May 21st, 2018

I love the Book of Titus. One of my favourite sections is a few verses from chapter 3. It says…

4 But— When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, 5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. 6 He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. 7 Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.

These verses talk about our salvation and our new life in Christ. Each verse contains something special.

v4 – God revealed His kindness and love to us.

v5 – God saved us because of His mercy, not because of our good deeds.

v5 – God washed away our sins and gave us a new life.

v6 – God poured out the Holy Spirit on us.

v7 – God declared us righteous.

v7 – God gave us confidence that we will have eternal life.

These four verses tell us so much about God’s love for us, His plan for salvation and the new life He gives us in Christ.

It is a life that is abundant. It is a life with a new purpose. It is a life that has assurance that we will spend eternity with Him.

I think these things are worth reflecting on today.

God Bless,
