Living Rightly Will Never Lead To Righteousness

grace and righteousness 2

***

      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, 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. (Titus 2:11-14.)

  1. Rick says:

    Yes, thank you! May the church become desperate to understand this! What a living message we would be if we lived in the context of this truth.

    Amen! We are his work. So often we try to work these things out because either we are hard on ourselves or the church has a cultural expectation of how Christians should behave, but then we miss out on seeing the work He does in us. Oh to rest in Him, to be still and know that He is God. – Leanne

    Amen! Grace is free. The fruits of grace are a result, not a cause.
