“11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,”
For many of us, we have just come off of an uplifting Lord’s Day of worship and rest and are now returning to a busy work week and family/personal tasks. In the process of performing the many responsibilities we must do every day, I pray that you would keep in mind the passage above from Titus. While the grace of God does amazing things in our life to include offering us salvation, it also acts as our trainer, teaching us what is right and how to live.
Make it a daily reminder this week that the Lord wishes us to live upright, godly lives as we anxiously await the return of our Savior. Be ready to turn away from unrighteousness when those situations arise and pray for self-control to face any temptation that the devil may throw at you. And no matter what you, do it in the name of the Lord, offering him the glory he so rightfully deserves.
