For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to
all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and
to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we
wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and
Savior, Jesus Christ…. Titus 2:11-13 (NIV)
Salvation is offered to all people, however not all will be
saved, there’s got be offer and acceptance for any deal to be sealed. While
salvation covers every aspect of life; health, work, social, spiritual etc. it
is not unusual to find we have accepted the salvation in one or two areas of
life alone. Always remember that salvation is all encompassing.
Finally, it teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and
worldly passions, by implication it means ungodliness and worldly passion will
be presented to us, it is our responsibility to say “No”. Through the grace of
God, we have the freedom and the ability to choose, we call this self-control.
No man is free who is not master of Himself, Epictetus
affirms. Today choose right, say no to ungodliness.
