December 9 | APPEARED
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, [Titus 2:11] But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared…[Titus 3:4]
…He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. [v5-7].
Let’s just read and re-read these passages! Jesus’ appearing reveals and extends to us His grace, mercy!
A Scripture like the above will enlighten our understanding of who God is, what He’s done through Jesus, and who we are! He is Grace and Mercy! These are not merely qualities that He has or gifts that He gives to us. JESUS IS GRACE and MERCY!
Thank you JESUS…for Appearing!
