December 29th – Titus 3:5

Titus 3:5

The mercy and grace God shows to us can scarcely be described or imagined. And the unconditional love He has for His children is no more evident than in the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.  Once we were eternally separated from God, dead in our sin. But because God stopped at nothing to call us His, He sent His Son, who knew no sin, to pay the sin debt of the world. And from the moment we receive Jesus as our Savior, not only are adopted in the family of God, washed clean from our sins, we receive the gift of life eternal!
