"We Once Were..."
“We Once Were…”
We continue to read/learn/reflect/meditate/live the grace of God.
This passage in Titus covers so much.
Give heed to what is said about:
how we were
how we are
For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.
But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared,
He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
We once were…
enslaved to various lusts
enslaved to pleasures
We once spent our lives in…
hating one another
We were saved.
…to be continued…
