April 28

Day 25 - the Holy Spirit brings power and life

In your own words ask God to help you hear and understand what He’s saying through His Word, and give thanks for the Holy Spirit that is empowering you to walk with Him after this devotional is done. Then read these verses (out loud if you are able).

 

Titus 3:5-7 (NLT)

He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.

 

God saved us, washed us, gave us, poured out, made us right, and gave us confidence. Take time finding each one of these things God has done for us in the verse and answer these questions:

  • what did God do?
  • why did He do it?
  • how did He do it? through?
  • what does it mean that this is true for me today? 

 

How amazing is the mercy and grace of our God that he would not hold our sins against us, but has saved us and given us a new life through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit has been generously poured out on us through Jesus Christ. Because of his amazing grace we are made right and can be certain that we have eternal life! 

 

This is the gospel that we get to tell others. What good news! God’s Spirit is empowering us today to take the truth of Jesus to the ends of the earth. 

 

Joyfully express to God with thanksgiving and worship your praise for what He has done for us. Thank Him for the grace and mercy that He shows to us all even today. Now spend some time memorizing this verse. Invite the Holy Spirit to help you commit it to memory and empower you to tell others about the amazing love of our God.
