But when the kindness and generous love of God our savior appeared, not because of any righteous deeds we had done but because of his mercy, he saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the holy Spirit, whom he richly poured out on us through Jesus Christ our savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.
St. Paul can surely write long sentences! But this one is full of powerful meaning. St. Paul…whose life was transformed by a mystical encounter with the risen Christ…knew intimately what salvation was all about. It’s not something we earn or achieve…but is a total gift of God! It is all grace. Everyone is forgiven and free in God’s unconditional love. Slowly read again the scripture verses above and know in your deepest self that there is no need to fear anything. This is Good News!
