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.
In a world in search of moral standards, salvation by the costly grace of God calls us to change our lifestyles in response to God's grace.
Anyone who receives grace and refuses to pursue righteousness demonstrates their hardness of heart. To be saved means to pursue righteousness — not so that we may earn our salvation, but so that God's saving grace will not be fruitless in us.
Heavenly Father, I pray that my life reflects the righteousness you gave me through Jesus. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart, be pleasing in your sight.” In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
