Titus 2:11-15 - (11) For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, (12) teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, (13) looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, (14) who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. (15) Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.
Apostle Paul explains that all Christians who were called in the church of God were given the grace of God. Grace has penetrated the lives of those who were called in the same way that light penetrates darkness. The grace of God entered into our lives and begun to dynamically produce good things.
When Christ came here on earth in the flesh, He brought light and penetrated humanity. God’s grace came through Christ and brought salvation to mankind.
But salvation can only happen if men will learn the teaching of the power of the grace of God, that is denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, which made us realize that indeed we are God’s sons and daughters and we are suppose to do what the Father wants. We don’t do what the Father hates. This is His will to all of us.
So, we live soberly, righteously and godly in this present age.
The Bible teaches that we are living in a dangerous time right now. People have forgotten what is the most essential thing in this life, which is serving God and doing His will. And as a Christian, it is our duty to remind not only ourselves but also other people. We are looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
The greatest possible evil that a person can face is God’s curse. People can curse people. But imagine if God will curse us. So instead of a possible curse, why not choose God’s grace. The grace of God is freely given to us. All we have to do is to find it.
There are many benefits that the grace of God can do to a Christian. It has the power to teach us, train us, discipline us and guide us to a way of life worthy of our calling. In other words, it teaches us to have full control of ourselves, not allowing the deceptions of all evil works, but only allows integrity and loyalty to God.
