The Daily Breath of God

But - "When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the 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." Titus 3:4-6 NLTHere we have a beautiful and refreshing reminder of the attitude our Lord has towards us. Our natural nature has such a tendency towards condemnation, fear and accusation, so that sometimes we forget the wonder and freedom we have in and through the grace of God. Think of his attitude that is revealed here with words such as - his kindness, his love, his mercy, he washed away our sins, he gave us new life and he generously poured out his Spirit upon us, WOW! On this new day may you enjoy his grace in the freedom of his kindness and encouragement. Here you will be free from fretting, worrying, stressing out and fears. In his grace there is assurance, hope and joy, all of which are living expressions of your new nature. This new day is a good day for thanksgiving and praise. Through your example everyone around you will see and experience the beauty and encouragement of his grace. His blessings are yours now and forever.
