An Apple a Day: Titus 3:4-6

~4) But when the kindness and love of God
our Savior appeared,5) he saved us, not
because of righteous things we had done,
but because of his mercy. He saved us
through the washing of rebirth and renewal
by the Holy Spirit, 6)whom he poured out
on us generously through Jesus Christ our
Savior, 7) so that, having been justified by
his grace, we might become heirs having
the hope of eternal life.

Salvation is a gift to everyone who will
simply accept it and recieve it!  We do not
have to work for salvation.  God sent His
Son, Jesus to die for each one of us.  Our
debts were paid then. Our sins were washed
away then.  All we have to do is open our
hearts and minds and ask Jesus to come
live within us.  We must confess that we
know we are sinners, but that we know
Jesus paid for our sins on the cross.  We
are not debtors.  We are the recipients of
the greatest gift ever given, Jesus'
unconditional love and forgiveness.  Why
would anyone refuse this free gift?  I
don't understand.
