Titus 3: 6-8... Grace is given to us as a free gift, it cannot be earned or merited. But salvation that does not move us out of our own self-destruction, and Rebellious ways is counterfeit.
Repentance is a life change. It is as if we've been going down a one way street the wrong way. It is an acknowledgment that we had been trying to guide life our own way and that it always ended in self disappointments, disasters, and eventually of going through death without the peace of Jesus. He is to be Lord of our lips, our deeds and of our lives.
Romans 5: 8-11...
We know that God's Grace is wonderful, but let us learn and always remember that "His will" is gracious. We will change our behavior to reflect Jesus, who was the atoning sacrifice for our sins.
