New birth, New life

new life flamingoes

For we also once were foolish ourselves,
enslaved to various lusts and pleasures,
spending our life in malice and envy,
hating one another.
But when the kindness of God our Savior
and His love for mankind appeared,
He saved us,
not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness,
but according to His mercy,
by the washing away of our sins and
by giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit,
whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
that being justified by His grace we might be made heirs
according to the hope of eternal life.

This is a trustworthy statement.
Titus 3:3-8
