Titus 3:5 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
3:5 Not by works - In this important passage the apostle presents us with a delightful view of our redemption. Herein we have, The cause of it; not our works or righteousness, but the kindness and love of God our Saviour.

"Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols.
"I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am--so much greater that I'm not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Jesus replied, "I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.
for I want somehow to make the people of Israel jealous of what you Gentiles have, so I might save some of them.
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much,
