Thank You, Father for such a good night’s sleep! I was only up once and You let me sleep in a little, too. I am truly grateful for Your love and watch care over me…
Titus 3:4-8 (<<click here)
Lord, we have all been enslaved to the things of this world…and there was absolutely nothing we could do about it. And then we get the first word in verse 4 – “But…”!
Because of You and You alone our slavery to sin is a thing of the past! You “Our Savior” in “kindness and love… saved us”! And we weren’t saved because of our own righteousness – for our “righteous deeds…are nothing but filthy rags.” Isaiah 64:6 Nope! Our salvation is because of Your mercy and You have “washed away our sins”! We are declared righteous because You say so – because You paid the price for our sin. You are worthy of all praise and honor – we who were hopeless are not filled with hope!
As the old hymn goes,
“He took my sins away,
He took my sins away,
And keeps me singing every day!
I’m so glad He took my sins away,
He took my sins away.”
Thank You, Lord!
