Read Titus 3:1-8
Now that doesn't mean I stop trying to do what's right and that I stop pressing in to become more like him. No, it simply means that I do those things out of love for this One who loved me so much that he came to this broken world, and gave all he had so that I wouldn't have to. Yet, I want to.
That's the beauty of God's kindness. It overflows into the depths of who we are, the real you and me, when we receive his kindness as a gift. For that is it's intended purpose - a gift that softens us, draws us in and awakens our souls to this God of love.
Father, thank you for your kindness in sending us your Son. May we never lose sight of this Extravagance poured out on us, simply because you loved us.
