For the grace of God has appeared with salvation for all people, instructing us to deny godlessness and worldly lusts and to live in a sensible, righteous, and godly way in the present age, while we wait for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people for His own possession, eager to do good works. Titus 2:11-14
It is somewhat difficult for Christians to live in a SENSIBLE, RIGHTEOUS, and GODLY way, in this day and age. We are held to certain laws and formats of society that force us, in some cases, to do, think and say things that goes against our beliefs as TRUE BELIEVERS of the Living God. However, because of God’s AMAZING GRACE, and the SALVATION of our souls, we are instructed to DENY godlessness and worldly lusts, and to strive at living in a SENSIBLE, RIGHTEOUS, AND GODLY way, while we wait for the RETURN of our SAVIOR and LORD, Jesus Christ.
Because of the SACRIFICE of Himself for the REDEMPTION of ALL mankind, from ALL lawlessness and to CLEANSE us, a people for His own POSSESSION, who are EAGER to do good works. The question that comes to my mind is, why is it that churches have so much trouble trying to get people to SERVE in different areas of the church, and then why is it when we try to do GOOD WORKS, all you hear is grumbling about having to do so much of it? Could it be that our churches are FAILING in their mission, for which they were set a part to do? Okay, I know I’m meddling, but God laid it on my heart, so I thought I would share, since some may have forgotten the mission of the TRUE BELIEVER.
If you are a TRUE BELIEVER, how do you want Jesus to find you, when He returns? Do you want to be sitting on the pew, waiting to be catered to? Or will you be carrying out His desire for His own possession, that you would be EAGER to SERVE Him? Do you want Him to find you GRUMBLING about having to HELP out people in NEED, or THANKFUL that you are ABLE to help someone less fortunate than yourself? And if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD then you are NOT a TRUE BELIEVER, and you have NOT experienced God’s AMAZING GRACE and SALVATION of your soul, but you are living a godless, unrighteous, and lawless life that will be condemned to Hell, unless you come to God, NOW, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE BELIEVER, who is LIVING a SENSIBLE, RIGHTEOUS, and GODLY life as His possession, EAGER to do good works. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
