Titus 3:4-5

Titus 3:4-5 – But when the kindness and Love of God our savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

           If you have accepted Christ as Savior you have been saved. There is nothing you could ever do to earn this salvation. It is all because of God; because He Loves us. In Romans we see two sides of God. There is “sternness to those who fell and kindness to you, as long as you continue in His kindness” (Romans 11:22). In this verse we see God’s kindness and His Love.
           It is due to the Love that He has for us, that He shows us His kindness through salvation. When you receive salvation you are able to see God’s Love and His kindness. Without God we would never be saved. We cannot measure up; we cannot earn righteousness. In fact, if God did not show us mercy we would receive death. That is what we deserve.
           Instead, when we call on Him, we receive salvation. This comes to us through God’s grace and mercy. He washes us and renews us and we are born anew in Him. This is what it all comes down to; this is the bottom line. God’s desire is for everyone to be saved and come to know Him. He wants to show you mercy; He wants to show you His Love and kindness. If you have not made a decision to follow Him, don’t wait any longer. Turn to God and let Him save you and make you new by His Holy Spirit.
