Second Chances: Grace Upon Grace
January 3, 2021
The grace of God brings
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. Titus 2:11
You are saved by God’s grace because of your faith. This salvation is God’s gift. It’s not something you possessed. Eph 2:8
No, I tell you, but unless you change your hearts and lives, you will die just as they did. Lk 13:3.
Putting fully in Jesus Christ
6 It’s impossible to please God without faith because the one who draws near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards people who try to find him. Heb 11:6
12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, Tt 2:12
8 Instead, they should show hospitality, love what is good, and be reasonable, ethical, godly, and self-controlled Tt 1:8
Tell the older men to be sober, dignified, sensible, and healthy in respect to their faith, love, and patience. Tt 2:2
and to be sensible, morally pure, working at home, kind and submissive to their own husbands, so that God’s word won’t be ridiculed. Tt 2:5
Time is not wasted
13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, Tt 2:13
14 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. Tt 2:14.
For the Human One (Jesus) didn’t come to be served but rather to serve and to give his life to liberate many people.” Mk 10:45
