A Thought for Today: “Trained by Saving Grace”
Once we are saved, we live different lives. It is not so much that we must change. The Holy Spirit changes us.
Please read the following verses to see some of these changes.
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
Can you imagine what it might be like if everyone was a believer?
This will not happen on this earth, but it will be true in heaven. I can’t wait to live there forever with the Lord God.
