Good Works Titus 2-3

In Titus 2:14 we are encouraged to understand that we have been saved to do good works for the Kingdom of God. In Titus 3:1 and 8 we are to be READY for every good work and to "be careful to maintain good works." Epghesians 2:10 it says, "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."

What are these good works Paul is talking about. Throughout his writings in the NT we are encouraged to live godly lives. This includes such things as in 3:1-2 to be subject to (or obey) the laws of the land, to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, walking in humility towards all. Why? Because we need to understand that there was a time when we were lost in sin and now we are saved through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is because of the kindness and love of God that we have been washed from our sin and made new again--and we need to live like it!

The Holy Spirit works in each of us moment by moment, day by day, moving us toward being more like Christ in our thinking and actions. How else are others going to recognize Jesus in us if we do not become more like Him in love and care for others.

Friends, let us today be thankful for such a great salvation, looking for the blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!
