Here is what the Lord does for those who are Believers.
Pours out the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ our Savior
Washing of regeneration through the Holy Spirit
Renewal of the Holy Spirit
Justifies by His grace
Makes us heirs according to the hope of eternal life
Gives the hope of eternal life
God does this because He is…
4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
5 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,
6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
None of this was due to works we had accomplished unto righteousness.
It was all because of God.
Now, we are to manifest works of righteousness, not for the maintaining of salvation, but to the glory of God.
As an heir of eternal life, we are to shine in the darkness.
We are the light of the world.
We are the salt of the earth.
May we cease behaving as the world.
May we live as the Lord designed.
To His praise, glory and honor.
