Devotional For March 4, 2024

For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.
‭‭Titus‬ ‭3‬:‭3‬

In Titus 3, the apostle Paul reminds Titus of the power of God’s grace in the lives of believers. Paul emphasizes the sinful nature from which they were saved and the importance of living in accordance with God’s mercy and love. Verse 3 portrays the past condition of believers before experiencing God’s redeeming grace.

Before coming to Christ, we were lost in sin, driven by selfish desires, and blinded by deception. However, through His mercy and love, God extended salvation to us, rescuing us from our sinful state.

As recipients of God’s grace, we are called to extend that same grace and compassion to others. Rather than harboring judgment or resentment towards those who are still lost in sin, let us approach them with understanding. Just as God showed kindness to us, let us be agents of His love in the lives of others.

In our interactions with others, remember our own past condition and the immeasurable grace God has shown us. Let us extend grace and compassion freely, reflecting the power of God’s love in our own lives.

Pray

Lord, thank You for Your abundant grace. Help me to remember my own past and approach others with humility and compassion. Fill my heart with Your love, that I may reflect Your grace to those around me. May Your mercy be evident in all I do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
