Titus 3:3 reminds us that before we were saved, we were all once foolish, disobedient, deceived, enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures, lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. God saved us because of his mercy and not because of good things we had done. When we realize this, we should respond with changes in our behaviour. God’s love and mercy in saving us will motivate us to excel in good works.
Doing good works are good and profitable for everyone. These good works may be avenues to lead people to experience God’s grace.
Our good works do not and cannot save us. It is by God’s grace and mercy that we are saved. We are saved to do good works (See also Ephesians 2:10)
Lord, thank you for Your grace, mercy and loving kindness which we do not deserve. Help us each day to grow to be more like Jesus to be effective witness of the gospel. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
