“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Titus 2:11-12

TODAY’S WORD…

.

For God has revealed His grace for the salvation of all people.

That grace instructs us to give up ungodly living and worldly passions,

and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this world.

.

– Titus 2:11-12 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

Divine grace is actively at work to redeem us;

it brings salvation; it sanctifies us, enabling us to live godly lives;

and it is the basis of our hope in the second coming of the Lord.

.

Jesus is our model;

by means of grace He instructs the Christian on how to control his or her defects and grow in virtue.

.

The instruction we receive is not only an external one:

God inwardly moves us to seek holiness.

.

Grace also channels our hope,

for Christians are motivated, especially, by the fact that Jesus is in the glory of heaven even now

and that we are invited to share His inheritance.

.

Let us, therefore, follow Christ

and make a firm resolution

to give up ungodly living and worldly passions,

and live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come, Holy Spirit, my Counsellor, Consoler and Sanctifier,

help me live a self-controlled, upright, and godly life.

Come, Holy Spirit, come.
