Titus 3:4-7

But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Saint Valentine Kneeling In Supplication, by David Teniers III, 1600’s

I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.  Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.  Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other.  Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

Psalms 85:8-11
