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 hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
Titus 2:11-13 NIV
We were saved by grace, through faith--and this is not from ourselves, it is the gift of God. This grace has been revealed through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. This grace teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, that we may live a self-controlled life, upright and godly in this present world of ours. (Ephesians 2:8)
When this grace comes to someone life, it teaches that person to hate the life style of sin and desire the godly life in Christ. This grace teaches mere men to fear God, seek His face and put their faith to the Creator. It is the grace of God that helps us to forgive and receive forgiveness from God. The grace of God changes our way of thinking and teaches us to think according to the word of God.
It is the grace of God that gives us patient to wait for the blessed hope-the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior. It is the grace of God that help us to restrain ourselves from going back to a life of sin that we once forsaken. It is the grace of God that gives us strength from day to day to fulfill the plan of God in our lives.
This morning, I want to encourage you to thank God for His grace in your life. Thank God for His salvation, thank Him for the forgiveness of sins. He has kept you through His grace up to this day. Many wanted to see this day but they didn't make it. By His grace you are still alive today because of His love-kindness in your life.
It is the grace of God that will take you in the coming year and order your steps in the right direction. God will prosper you in everything you do by His grace; He will fulfill all what He has promised you according to his plan in your life. Praises are to God for His amazing grace in our lives. May His perfect will be fulfilled in our lives.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer...
