The Season of the Incarnation

Slowly consider this teaching from late in Paul’s life… as he instructed Titus to bring order to a disorderly community, he reminded them of how to, and why they should, live for the Incarnate Son of God:

“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 for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.”

(Titus‬ ‭2:11-14‬ ‭ESV‬‬)
