Titus 3:4-7 CEB

4 But "when God our savior's kindness and love appeared,
5 he saved us because of his mercy, not because of righteous things we had done. He did it through the washing of new birth and the renewing by the Holy Spirit,
6 which God poured out upon us generously through Jesus Christ our savior.
7 So, since we have been made righteous by his grace, we can inherit the hope for eternal life."
