I am in NEED of Jesus

Meditating on this verse:
"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 3:5-7

We are all so weak, and in desperate need of His mercy! We are all broken, and in need of His grace! We have all sinned and fallen short, but praise Jesus that He did not come to condemn us! BUT even though condemnations are removed, the consequences are not. We all must face the consequences of our sins. It will most likely be hard, and it may not be pretty, but only God can create something beautiful from ashes! We must allow the Lord to come in clean out the places of sin in our hearts, so that we can be filled with the Holy Spirit. He so desperately wants to bless us out of the mess we are in, so that His name can be glorified!
