But when the kindness...
As I saw down today to catch up on writing my “daily” blog, the word, “kindness” came to my mind. Once again, as I searched for verses with this word, I realized how many there are that could encourage us in our daily walk. I will share them with you over the next several days.
But when the kindness and love for mankind of God our Deliverer was revealed, 5 he delivered us. It was not on the ground of any righteous deeds we had done, but on the ground of his own mercy. He did it by means of the mikveh of rebirth and the renewal brought about by the Ruach HaKodesh, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Yeshua the Messiah, our Deliverer. 7 He did it so that by his grace we might come to be considered righteous by God and become heirs, with the certain hope of eternal life. (CJB)
I really have no words for this verse and the HOPE and JOY it should bring us. The KINDNESS of our Father and the LOVE He has for mankind. He is our DELIVERER.
The One Who created us, POURED OUT ON US GENEROUSLY. He GAVE us the Ruach HaKodesh (the HOLY SPIRIT). He gave us the MESSIAH!
HIS GRACE is what has made us RIGHTEOUS. We are now HEIRS and have the HOPE of eternal LIFE.
None of this was done on ground of anything we did. We did not do righteous deeds to make this happen. It was the GROUND of HIS OWN MERCY.
I am reminded of a song that says, “It’s YOUR Kindness that leads us to repentance Oh Lord…” Bring me to repentance today, Father and thank You for Your HOPE!
Friends, what more could we ask, think, or imagine! What more can we embrace????
I am thankful today for HIS KINDNESS!
