“For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 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” – From time to time, its good for believers to be reminded of two very important facts: (1) we all have dark secrets and have sinned in our pasts; and (2) it was God’s grace that saved us from ourselves and gave us hope for a bright future in Him.
