"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, while we wait for the blessed hoped - the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, EAGER TO DO WHAT IS GOOD." Titus 2:11-14
I woke up this morning thinking about the grace of God. I am thankful for the grace of God. Because of God's grace, I no longer belong to this world and it's passions and desires. I belong to the King! Because of God's grace, I am no longer threatened by hell and eternal death. I have eternal life...because of God's grace! But God's grace doesn't stop there. God's grace actually purifies me from my sinful nature. God's grace actually helps me in my everyday life, right here and right now. Because of God's grace, I am EAGER TO DO WHAT IS GOOD! Without God's grace, I would still be eager to do what I want to do...eager to please self...eager to what is ungodly. Thank God for His grace!!!
