Saved By Grace, Part 4



July 9, 2020


Titus 2:11-14 (NKJV)

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."


The grace of God is not just for a few select people, but it is for all of mankind. Grace brings salvation. David Guzik says in the Blue Book Bible, “You don’t go out and 'get salvation;' it comes to you and you have the opportunity to receive it.”


We are taught God's grace is God’s underserved favor, and favor is God’s ability to do what we can’t do in ourselves. These teach us and help us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts as we look for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Once we receive God’s grace then we get to live in it. When I think about us living sober lives, I think about God’s grace in helping us to do just that. To me, if I’m trying to do this on my own, then I have fallen from grace (God’s ability) to my ability, and I am not able to do it. Without Him I am hopeless, but with Him I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


Father, I am so looking forward to Your soon and coming return to gather us up, and take us to the precious place that You have prepared for us. Your grace has placed us in position where we expect to see You, Lord Jesus, face-to-face. Amen, Amen, and Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
