Titus - Chapter Three

THINKING BIBLICALLY - Part 4           Page 3

V. 5 ** So if we were once as bad (or worse) than all of mankind, how were we saved?

"He saved us...!"
1Timothy 1:15 - "...the world to save sinners..."
2Timothy 1:8-9 - "...who saved us..."

** Was that because we were so loveable, because we had done such a good job obeying His law?

No! "..not on the basis of deeds...but according to His mercy..."

** How does Paul describe the miraculous moment of our salvation?

"...the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit..."
cf. John 3:5, 15:3 and Ephesians 5:26

V. 6 ** How did God choose to pour out this blessing upon us?

"...richly through Jesus Christ our Savior..."

** What is significant about Jesus being called our Savior?

Only God is our Savior! Therefore, Jesus is God!
cf. Titus 1:3, 2:10, 3:4 with Luke.1:46-47

V. 7 ** So if we can't earn our salvation and Christ was the means to our regeneration, how were we as sinners justified before a Holy God?

"...being justified by His grace.." cf. Ephesians 2:8

** What did we gain by that gracious justification?

We became "heirs according to the hope of eternal life..."

** Since we have gained so much BY THE GRACE OF GOD, should we just live our life anyway we want, in total disregard for His word, knowing that His grace will increase on our behalf?

me genoito - "May it never be"

All see - Romans 6:1-4
V. 4 "...so we too might walk in newness of life.
(or in keeping with our study, Thinking Biblically)

V. 8 ** Is that a trustworthy presentation of the gospel?

Absolutely! "This is a trustworthy statement"
