161228But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. This Spirit he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:4-7, NRSV)

Not because of what you have done or didn’t do.

But because of His mercy!

Through the inpouring of the Holy Spirit and through the rebirth of His mercy we are made heirs to the kingdom according to the hope of eternal life!

So know it is not because of you, it is a because of Jesus.
