Titus Outline
Titus 3:5

5 Not out of 1aworks in brighteousness which we did but according to His 2cmercy He dsaved us, through the 3ewashing of 4fregeneration and the grenewing of the 5Holy hSpirit,

52 Verse 11 of ch. 2 says that the grace of God brings salvation to man, and v. 7 of this chapter says that we are justified by the grace of the Lord. But this verse says that according to His mercy God saved us. God's mercy reaches farther than His grace. Our pitiful condition created a wide gap between us and God's grace. It was God's mercy that bridged this gap and brought us to His salvation of grace. See notes 162 in Heb. 4 and 132 in Matt. 9.
