It wasn’t that long ago that by missing God’s goal, I wasn’t living a very “smart” life. But God saved me from all of that. It was all His doing. He is God and in a very good mood.
It was not anything I could have figured out on my own. He gave me a very good bath. So I am all clean now by way of the Holy Spirit. He has been so generous to me.
Through Jesus, the Messiah, I am living a new life. What a gift to have my relationship restored with Him.
And there is more. I get to live this new life forever. No end to it at all. We are people of hope.
At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 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, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus, the Messiah, our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7 TNIV
