THOUGHT OF THE DAY

June 24,2020

Titus 3:1-8 AMP
[1] Remind people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready and willing to do good, [2] to slander or abuse no one, to be kind and conciliatory and gentle, showing unqualified consideration and courtesy toward everyone. [3] For we too once were foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various sinful desires and pleasures, spending and wasting our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. [4] But when the goodness and kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared [in human form as the Man, Jesus Christ], [5] He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we have done, but because of His own compassion and mercy, by the cleansing of the new birth (spiritual transformation, regeneration) and renewing by the Holy Spirit, [6] whom He poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior, [7] so that we would be justified [made free of the guilt of sin] by His [compassionate, undeserved] grace, and that we would be [acknowledged as acceptable to Him and] made heirs of eternal life [actually experiencing it] according to our hope (His guarantee). [8] This is a faithful and trustworthy saying; and concerning these things I want you to speak with great confidence, so that those who have believed God [that is, those who have trusted in, relied on, and accepted Christ Jesus as Savior,] will be careful to participate in doing good and honorable things. These things are excellent [in themselves] and profitable for the people.
