Grace teaches us what to long for, what to pursue after saying no to worldly and ungodly desires. Not only that, grace also enables us to live up to God’s calling for holiness, making possible through Jesus what is too hard on our own. Best of all, God in His grace offers the hope of eternal life, freeing us from temporal temptations. In this message, Alistair Begg expounds on the anticipation grace creates and the transformation it performs.
11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
15Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
