Titus 3:4-7 is one long sentence and provides one of the most comprehensive accounts of our salvation. God our Savior is the source of our salvation and it came to us as a result of His kindness, love, mercy, and grace. We were totally depraved, helpless and hopeless sinners, but God saved us (Titus 3:5) from sin, death and hell and from all of the characteristics of our total depravity described in Titus 3:3. Every person of the omnipotent Godhead is involved in our salvation, God the Father (4, 5), God the Son (6) and God the Holy Spirit (5), resulting in our regeneration. Generation is one birth while regeneration is two births. A person must be born again in order to experience God's salvation.
