Daily Devotion

Many people get down on themselves when they stumble, for they start believing that they are unworthy of salvation. Others become so self righteous that they believe they've earned their way into heaven through their acts of kindness. True, we should always strive to follow God's commands to the best of our ability, but it is ultimately God's grace and mercy that saves us.

"But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 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, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life."
Titus 3:4-7 (NIV)
