The grace of God that brings salvation

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” – Titus 2:11-14

Now that is a sentence!

We have seen strange things today!

“And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, ‘We have seen strange things today!’” – Luke 5:26

Grace would seem strange to a graceless society.

Prince of Peace

“For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isa. 9:6

Peace is not the absence of war, but the presence of God.

A friend of the world becomes an enemy of God

“Don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.” – James 4:4

Friendship with the world is hatred toward God. A friend of the world is an enemy of God.

He only is my Rock and my Salvation

He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.” – Psa. 62:2,6

Trust in the Lord.
