I marvel at Apostle Paul’s ability to capture every authentic Christ follower’s personal testimony!! I know his expression of it in Titus 3:3-7 tells my story! I think you’ll admit it’s your story too!
“For we all were once foolish, disobedient, misled, enslaved to various passions and desires, spending our lives in evil and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love for mankind appeared, he saved us not by works of righteousness that we have done but on the basis of his mercy, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us in full measure through Jesus Christ our Savior. And so, since we have been justified by his grace, we become heirs with the confident expectation of eternal life.” (from Titus 3:3–7 the NET Bible)
If we were asked to share your story – your testimony – of God’s redeeming grace in your life, I think we all could use this as a text and an outline to tell our “salvation story” from! Thank you Lord for what you’ve done in my life!
