through Jesus Christ.

**********

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived . . .”

“But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared “

“not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit “

“whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,”

“that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3,4,5,6,7. NKJV

by His hand.
