July 31–God’s Kind of Kindness!

At one time we were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures.

We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things that we had done, but because of His mercy.

He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior. Titus 3:4-6

 God’s kind of kindness to us is not based on anything we have done to earn it.

God’s kind of kindness is not conditional.

God’s kind of kindness is not limited by our perspectives of self or others that may have been wounded or twisted because of our circumstances.

God’s kind of kindness is not weakened because we have been hurt by others or hurtful towards others.

God’s kind of kindness is not altered because we have been hated or hateful.

God’s kind of kindness comes to us through His unfailing, unlimited love and mercy offering us forgiveness of sins, healing of our minds, renewal of our lives and eternal life with our God through the sacrificial death and conquering resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is our choice to accept and fully receive the kindness, love and mercy offered to us by our God!

And, then, by God’s Spirit, to be fully renewed for all eternity…each moment by moment…each thought by thought…each action by action through the generous and powerful out-pouring of God’s kind of kindness!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
