DEVOTION: "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 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 Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life."  Titus 3:3-6
 
 
Sometimes you just have to let the Word speak for itself.  I can't say it any better than Paul says it right here.  Nuff said.
 
Let's pray:  Lord God help me to trust and have hope in your washing of rebirth  and renewal by the Holy Spirit, so that I may live a new life.  Amen.
