Titus 2:11-14 – The Grace of God for All


Titus 2:11-14


God’s salvation has appeared in Jesus, whose self-giving love redeems sinners and shapes a community characterized by good works. 


The Christian message appears here in a nutshell. The passage includes reference to past, present, and future. In the past, the grace of God appeared; Christ gave himself. In the present, that grace forms godly people. The future will reveal that for which Christians hope, namely the full manifestation of God’s glory in Christ. 

This salvation is for all. Though Titus and the churches on Crete have enemies, God’s grace extends beyond the battle lines of current conflicts to embrace all.
