Titus 3:5: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” We know that throughout the scriptures, the love of God is expressed in many different ways. In each time, the Word speaks of salvation, it speaks of the sacrifice and love expressed for us. Many times we try to work hard enough, pray hard enough, sing loud enough, or be “good” enough.This may be a shock to some of you, but you will never be “good enough”. You will never “do” enough. There is nothing we can do to “work” our way into heaven, or earn salvation. It is with His mercy were we given such a gift.
Each time in the scriptures it is taught that the only way to the Father, is through the Son. The only way our sins are washed away is through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and our acceptance of Him as our Lord and Savor. He paid the ultimate price. He suffered for us so that we can be free. FREE!! We are FREE to worship! We are FREE to praise!!! Our heavenly Father left us with a comforter, a spiritual intercessor to help us through our walk.
