Grace Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our 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 lawlessness and to purify himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works."

There is much to unpack in these few verses. But let us concentrate today on the first part: "the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people..." Grace, I have often thought of this as an acrostic: God's Riches At Christ's Expense." It is the grace of God, the goodness and love of God that has brought salvation to ALL people. We must understand that there is not one single person in this world--no matter their ethnicity--that God has not desired to bring salvation to!

We must protect our hearts from thinking only beyond our own small worlds and understand that it goes around the world for the Lord to know and desire relationship with His creation. God's grace is precious and to be honored as love the Lord Jesus with all that is within us.
