4 But the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared.
5 He saved us. It wasn't because of the good things we had done. It was because of his mercy. He saved us by washing away our sins. We were born again. The Holy Spirit gave us new life.
6 God poured out the Spirit on us freely because of what Jesus Christ our Savior has done.
7 His grace made us right with God. So now we have received the hope of eternal life as God's children.
