From Foolishness To Regeneration - Titus 3: 1-8

At one time foolishness ruled our minds so often looking back being led astray disobedient being passionate on one's pleasure hatred ruled our beings each and every day Keep in mind regarding authority that rules make sure you're ready to work real good never speak evil always gentle to everyone be polite to everybody never at all rude Then one day loving-kindness appeared in the person of Jesus Christ our saviour He saved us taking our sin to Calvary due to His mercy to alter our behavior Washing performed by the holy spirit of regeneration and renewal as a sign God's power at work so evident preparing us for heaven where we'll dine Being justified by God's grace alone so to become heirs by an eternal hope in this, we trust believing in God holding our grip to our heavenly rope (Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. 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. The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.) Titus 3: 1-8 (ESV) (I have written this piece on the above passage of scripture for it shows the work that Christ has done on our behalf taking us in our foolishness and regenerating us by the holy spirit to be Christ's possession.)
