"Self-Controlled Under God's Grace"

 

“Self-Controlled Under God’s Grace”

 

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

 

God’s Grace makes us what we SHOULD be.  The Apostle Paul says: “But by the GRACE OF God, I am what I am, and His Grace to me was not without effect.  No, I worked harder than all of them---yet not I, but the GRACE of God that was with me.”  (1 Corinthians 15:10)   In 1 Thessalonians 4:4, Paul tells us that we SHOULD LEARN to control our own body in a way that is HOLY and HONORABLE.  Not caught up in our own FLESHLY DESIRES and therefore prone to ungodliness.

 

The Apostle Peter says that:  We SHOULD make EVERY effort to add to our FAITH, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, SELF-CONTROL; and to SELF-CONTROL, perseverance; and to perseverance, GODLINESS.  (2 Peter 1:5-6) Therefore, when we accept God’s gift of SALVATION, by His GRACE, it is that GRACE that teaches us, and gives us the KNOWLEDGE to be able to say “NO” to UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY PASSIONS.  And to be able to live a SELF-CONTROLLED, UPRIGHT and GODLY life in this present age.

 

 2 Timothy 3:1-5, tells us that in the last days, people will be lovers of themselves, without love for others, unforgiving, slanderous, without SELF-CONTROL, brutal, not lovers of the good, nor lovers of God.  They will FOLLOW after UNGODLINESS and WORLDLY PASSIONS, and will end up spending their ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE. 

 

So, let us, the TRUE BELIEVERS, those who have given their HEART and LIFE to GOD, live a SELF-CONTROLLED life under the GRACE of our AMAZING GOD, while we wait for the BLESSED HOPE, the APPEARING of the GLORY of our GREAT GOD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, who gave Himself to REDEEM us from ALL WICKEDNESS and to provide for the TRUE BELIEVER an ETERNITY in Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS. 

 

If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to the ALMIGHTY GOD, then your ETERNAL DESTINY is Hell, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, unless you are WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  And CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.  Then BELIEVE with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and live a SELF-CONTROLLED life, under God’s GRACE, and receive HEAVEN as your ETERNAL HOME.  Do this NOW, while we WAIT for His RETURN, because He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
