Titus 3:5 (NIV) He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Breathe on me, breath of God; Fill me with life anew, That I may love what thou dost love, And do what thou wouldst do. Edwin Hatch (1835-1889)
