Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

August 8, 2010 (glorious appearing)

glorious appearing

“For the grace of God
(His unmerited favor and blessing)
has come forward (appeared)
for the deliverance from sin
and the eternal salvation for all mankind.
It has trained us to reject and renounce
all ungodliness (irreligion)
and worldly (passionate) desires,
to live discreet (temperate, self-controlled),
upright, devout (spiritually whole) lives in this present world,
Awaiting and looking for the
[fulfillment, the realization of our] blessed hope,
even the glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior
Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One),
Who gave Himself on our behalf
that He might redeem us
(purchase our freedom) from all iniquity
and purify for Himself a people
[to be peculiarly His own, people who are]
eager and enthusiastic about
[living a life that is good
and filled with] beneficial deeds.”
- Titus 2:11-14 AMP
