Letter of St. Paul to Titus 3: 4 – 7

3:4 But then the kindness and humanity of God our Savior appeared.
3:5 And he saved us, not by works of justice that we had done, but, in accord with his mercy, by the washing of regeneration and by the renovation of the Holy Spirit,
3:6 whom he has poured out upon us in abundance, through Jesus Christ our Savior,
3:7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we may become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
