The Holy Spirit was poured out on us (Titus 3:6)

“God poured out

This Spirit

On us richly,

Through Jesus Christ

Our Savior.”

οὗ ἐξέχεεν ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς πλουσίως διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ Σωτῆρος ἡμῶν,

Paul said, “God poured out (οὗ ἐξέχεεν) this Spirit on us (ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς) richly (πλουσίως), through Jesus Christ (διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ) our Savior (τοῦ Σωτῆρος ἡμῶν).”  Only the Pauline letters used this word πλουσίως, that means richly or abundantly.  Paul explained to Titus that God has poured out abundantly his Holy Spirit on us.  All this has been done through Jesus Christ, our Savior.  Perhaps these last few verses were part of a baptismal hymn.  Do you let the Holy Spirit into your life?
