Our Savior appeared (Titus 3:4)

“Then the goodness

And loving kindness

Of God

Our Savior

Appeared.”

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?
