“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age…” (Titus 2:11-14)

The grace God gives is sufficient and nothing escapes the goodness of God expressed in His grace. Those who gratefully receive grace to live above condemnation are freed from religion’s legalism, knowing missteps are covered as we give our all, our very best, in pursuit of and aligned with His Word. 

Grace teaches us to believe strongly, stand firmly, lead by example, live demonstrative faith and love God completely; true Bible grace is a stronghold for the godly, a joy greater than weak-willed excuses and a triumph of redemption over rigid and legalistic doctrine. God’s grace silences rule-mongers and gives voice to born-again hearts who honor His Word and reach by faith for the heights and depths of His love. 

Grace also teaches us to say “no” to ungodly and worldly passions; grace encourages self-controlled lifestyles and righteous living despite the culture’s noise. Jesus gives redemption from wickedness to purify and set apart for Himself. He is Grace. He makes a way even when there is no way. Grace leads the way out! 

“Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with you all.” (Titus 3:15)

Amen.
