It is possible. We are able. We can stop obsessing over the things of the world and turn to God deciding to do His will and give Him all the glory. How can we know that we have the ability to turn away from the things of the world? How can we be strong enough to do what is right even when everyone is doing wrong? How can we draw from that which we believe we do not have? We can do this because of God’s amazing grace.
Titus 2:11-14 “For the grace of God has been revealed, bringing salvation to all people. And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God, while we look forward with hope to that wonderful day when the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed. He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we know You don’t ask us to do anything You know we can’t do. We know that You gave to us Your amazing grace so that we could simply accept it. When we do, You will save us. When we do, You will help us. When we do, You will cleanse us. Thank You, Lord, for Your amazing grace that has been revealed to us through Your word and through Your son, Jesus Christ. We want to honor and bring glory to You today in all You do for us by sharing Your word with others and live as You have commanded us to live. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Our God has the ability to give us all that we cannot give ourselves which is way more than we could ever want or need.
When God’s grace is all we need, why do we continue to seek the things of the world?
Knowing that God’s grace is sufficient for all men, what makes us think that we need anything else to succeed in life?
2 Corinthians 12:9 “Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (NLT)
Without accepting God’s grace, obeying Him and being devoted to Him, we are simply going to continue to sink back into the traps of the world.
Titus 2:12b “We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,” (NLT)
