This coming Lord’s Day, we are scheduled to hear God’s Word preached from Titus 2:11-14.
“11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, 14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.”
In preparing for preaching, I read through, for the first time, Pastor John Calvin’s sermon from this passage. I’ve attached a copy for your benefit. As he reflects on the gift and obligation of God’s grace toward us, Calvin highlights some key points from Titus that I’ve been trying to communicate over the weeks we’ve spent together going through Titus. For example, this excerpt is particularly instructive to me and personally encouraging:
I hope you will be equally encouraged and challenged. –Pastor Tyson
