“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Titus 3:4-7

TODAY’S WORD…

.

But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour was revealed,

He saved us.

.

It was not because of any good deeds that we ourselves had done,

but because of His own mercy that He saved us,

through the Holy Spirit, who gives us new birth and new life by washing us

.

God poured out the Holy Spirit abundantly on us

through Jesus Christ our Saviour,

so that by His grace we might be put right with God

and come into possession of the eternal life we hope for.

.

– Titus 3:4-7 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

These verses are a magnificent resume of our faith,

of our belief and trust in Christ.

.

Every Christian should bear witness to salvation history,

to the change from sin to grace,

and the change from an era of slavery and error

to the era of freedom and rebirth ushered in by Christ.

.

Our Heavenly Father and Creator makes known His kindness and love

through the incarnation of Jesus Christ, His beloved Son, our Saviour

– we have been redeemed solely by virtue of His own mercy.

.

The door to salvation is Baptism,

for it is the sacrament of regeneration and renewal.

The Holy Spirit, sent by Christ, makes the waters of Baptism effective;

His grace gives life to the soul and entitles it to eternal life.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

All glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,

world without end. Amen!
