The Gospel in Two Sentences: From Hate to Hope

Meant to read 2 Timothy 3 this morning. Accidentally read Titus 3 instead. (Hey, the books are right next to each other. Either that or I can’t read so well.) Anyway, I was struck by this (v. 3-7):

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

This is the Gospel. Live here. Soak it up. Experience it new every day. We used to hate, but we have been justified by grace. Now we hope. What could be better?
