The Lord Saved Us - Bro. T. Stephen

My   Dear   Brother   and  Sister in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator,  Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the  Lord   has   given   for  you  today  is  from  the  book  of  Titus 3:5 “ He saved us not because of the righteous things which we had done, But because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth, and renewal by the Holy Spirit. ”

My Dear Brother And Sister, from the above context we learn that God is gracious and merciful, and so the Bible says, we have been saved by Grace. Scripture  frequently mentions  about  the mercy God provides, for the sins which we commit,  if we are willing to repent. Nobody is perfect, And God knows that all of us have fallen short of His glory. God who is rich in mercy has saved us because of His great love for us. How wonderful is the truth that we are saved and that all our sins were washed away the moment we trusted Christ Jesus as Saviour and were born from above. Salvation did not come to us because of any good deeds that we did or because we gained some merit – indeed one of the most difficult things for sinful man to accept is that Salvation is a free gift of grace from God to those who simply believe on Christ as Saviour, those who believe that He died on the cross to pay the price for our sins and through believing on Him  we  are given life everlasting.

My Dear Brother And Sister,  We were not saved from our sins and brought into the family of God because of our good works, righteous deeds, important heritage or exemplary behaviour – nor are we excluded because of our wicked past, our unholy behaviour, due to an accident of birth or because we are out of favour with God! There is nothing we have done or could ever do that would qualify or disqualify us for salvation – the whole matter is exclusively based on the kindness and love of God. It all centres on His grace and mercy towards us who by right should be eternally separated from our holy God and eternal Creator.    We are now heirs of God, possessors of the hope of the eternal life. So we are as Jesus said,  the light shining  in the darkness, of this evil age.     

My Dear Brother And Sister, But because He is rich in mercy and not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance and turn from their sins. He washed away our sins and gave us new life in Christ, by the power of His Holy Spirit – and the one and only ‘condition’ is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.  Our salvation is NOT because of the righteousness that we had done, but according to His mercy, and it happened when we were washed clean the moment we were born again and were made a new creation in Christ by means of the Holy Spirit,  Whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Saviour. We are as Jesus said, the light shining in the darkness, of this evil age.    Praise Be To His holy name.

Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father,  we   thank   You   for  this  blessed day. Dear Lord,   we thank for Your grace and mercy towards us. Thank You that You have washed our sins and made us   a new creation  in Christ through the power of the  Holy Spirit. Help us to be as  light shining for you and your glory.

 In Jesus  Name We Pray.
