Titus 3:6-7

The management team of which I am part was recently shaken up. One guy moved on to another job, we got a new member, and others stayed with the team but were placed in new roles. One of my buddies was sent away for several days to a train for his new position. Now, my boss sent him to training expecting that when he returned, he would make an impact with his new knowledge. Why would the boss waste the time and money if he never used anything he learned?

God poured out the power of the Holy Spirit on us for the expressed purpose of changing us into co-heirs with Jesus. So, there is an expectation of new life, changed life, empowered life, etc. If Jesus has saved you, you are a new person. You have been radically changed, given new standing before God, equipped with new hope, and prepared for a new future.

Titus 3:6-7 God poured out the Holy Spirit 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.
