  3. 3. Titus 3:3-8 <ul><li>But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Titus 3:3-8 <ul><li>This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I want you to speak confidently, so that those who have believed God will be careful to engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men. </li></ul>

  7. 7. What is the Bible? <ul><li>The Bible is not a book for the faint of heart - it is a book full of all the greed and glory and violence and tenderness and sex and betrayal that benefits mankind. It is not the collection of pretty little anecdotes mouthed by pious little church mice - it does not so much nibble at our shoe leather as it cuts to the heart and splits the morrow from the bone. It does not give us answers fitted to our small-minded questions, but truth that goes beyond what we can even know to ask. </li></ul><ul><li>from Thoughts and Reflections by Rich Mullins </li></ul>
