Titus 3:5-7 NLT

He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of His grace he declared us righteous and gave us a confidence that we will inherit eternal life.

One of the most amazing truths of the gospel is that God has mercy on us, despite anything we’ve done or failed to do. God has been very generous with His grace and mercy, as well as generous with the outpouring of His Holy Spirit….generous to a people who certainly don’t deserve it.

I pray our prodigals have come to the realization they can’t be righteous enough to inherit eternal life. May the thought of God’s generous mercy towards them be an overwhelming force for a changed life.
