Say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions

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… – Titus 2:11-12

In a world which has no absolutes, in a world in search of moral standards, salvation by the costly grace of God beckons us to change our lifestyles in response to God’s grace. Anyone who receives grace and refuses to pursue righteousness demonstrates his/her ignorance or hardness of heart. In our day, in our time, 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.

My Prayer… Holy Father, I confess that I live in a confusing time. Satan is always distorting the distinction between right and wrong, good and evil, moral and immoral. Because you have been so gracious with me, may my life today reflect the righteousness you gave me through Jesus. “May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart, be pleasing in your sight, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Through Jesus, my atoning sacrifice I pray. Amen.
