uninspired Monday

I’m feeling uninspired today.  So rather than try to muster up something to say, I thought I’d just share what I’ve been memorizing lately.  When I came across Titus 2:11-14 and 3:1-7, they seemed like great passages to know by heart.  Such sweet, holistic descriptions of the Gospel.  I think this one has one of the great “buts” of the Bible –

Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.  For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

(Titus 3:1-7 ESV)

Sometimes I think I start to forget just how much I’ve been saved from.  And sometimes I forget what exactly I’ve been saved to.  

I love the beauty of Scripture.  God’s very words.  I want to just sit and soak in them until my face glows like Moses’ when he stood in God’s presence.  Just resting in the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior.

Scripture, sunshine, and sleeping girls.  The inspiration will come. 🙂
