Today's reading: Titus 3:1-11
Two pictures of life are described in Titus 3. The first is based on a relationship with Christ and is characterized by a positive mindset and the desire to do good works. The other is a pre-salvation picture that's characterized by negativity and self-centered thinking and actions. It's quite a stark contrast. Thank you, God, for saving us and changing our lives forever!
"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..." (verses 4-6).
Why is it important to look back and remember the transforming of your life through a relationship with Jesus? How often do you thank God for saving you? Who do you know that needs a new life in Christ? Ask God to help you share Jesus with them this week. Tami
