“Then the goodness
And loving kindness
ὅτε δὲ ἡ χρηστότης καὶ ἡ φιλανθρωπία ἐπεφάνη τοῦ Σωτῆρος ἡμῶν Θεοῦ,
Paul said, “Then the goodness (ὅτε δὲ ἡ χρηστότης) and loving kindness (καὶ ἡ φιλανθρωπία) of God (Θεοῦ) our Savior (τοῦ Σωτῆρος ἡμῶν) appeared (ἐπεφάνη).” Only the Pauline letters used this word χρηστότης, that means goodness, excellence, uprightness, kindness, or gentleness. Things changed for Paul. So too, they can change for you. The good and kind God, his Savior appeared to Paul. Everything changed for the better. Once Christ appears, everything gets better. Goodness and kindness overcome hate and self-indulgence. Could your life get better?
