I Love These Verses

"But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life." Titus 3:4-7 (ESV)

I love these verses because they show the goodness of God in His amazing gifts to His children.

Look at the gifts mentioned (some of these may share aspects, but they are still all mentioned separately here):

"he saved us"
"the washing of regeneration"
"renewal of the Holy Spirit"
"being justified"
"hope of eternal life"

Why does He do this? The above passage tells us that it is according His mercy and grace.

Praise the Lord!
