Saved according to His mercy

Why are we saved? Are we saved because we have decided or because God in His mercy has decided to save us? There is something very special that we must understand about salvation, and is that salvation is a gift of God, a gift that He gives us through the death of His Son on the cross, not because we deserve it, but because of its wide mercy to us.The new testament tells us a lot about justification through Christ, about the gift of salvation, and always emphasizes that this is not something that has been granted to us because we are good, intellectual, intelligent or because we have any kind of talent, but it has been granted to us because God has mercy on whom He wants and we give glory to God because He has had mercy on us.

The apostle Paul wrote to Titus:

4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,

5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,

Titus 3:4-5

The Bible tells us in verse number four of Titus chapter 3 about that time in which God’s love and kindness to men was manifested, and that time is when Christ came and gave His life to justify us. Then in verse five he tells us that we have a savior, and here we must make an interesting stop to understand the weight of salvation. We have a savior, that means we have not depended on ourselves to be saved, but we have a savior, a redeemer, someone who rescued us and paid the highest price for our sins.

We are not saved by our good works or because we are the most punctual Christians, we are not saved by any of this but we have a Savior and His name is Jesus Christ. We could not save ourselves and it was impossible that today we were Christians of our own free will, for which, we needed a savior and He saved us from ourselves and from the wrath of God.

We must always abide in this thinking, that we have been saved by the wide mercy of God towards us and not by our works.

    Saved according to His mercy
    ========================
    In the beginning, after our first parents were disobedient to their Creator and sinned against Him, they were punished and thrown out of that beautiful Garden where they had been placed by God; and they became enemies of Him.

    “But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,” Titus 3:4-5

    The Lord God had preordained that our first parents and
    their descendants would not be eternally separate from Him; but He had mercy and promised them that from the seed of the woman a Saviour would be born: that was our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The Lord God established that those who believed in Him, in Jesus Christ, would be pardoned and adopted children of God by faith in Him. Nobody could get this blessings for being good or because they deserved it, but because He had mercy “through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,”

    That means that those who believe in Jesus have their sins washed away; they are spiritually born again and are made new creatures by the power of the Holy Spirit. In the words revealed by God to the apostle Paul, they are justified by faith and get peace with God through the death of Jesus Christ on the Cross.

    “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
    (Romans 5:1)

    If the love of God has been revealed in our hearts and we want to have peace with God and be pardoned for our sins, we must confess them to God in the name of Jesus Christ. He will cleanse us from all our evil works and will give us his peace. The peace of God.

    “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
    (1 John 1:9)

    May the Lord God have mercy on me and on you that read these thoughts. Thanks to you Lord God.
