3 Bible Verses That Teach Us 3 Things About Grace

3. “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” (Titus 2:11-12).

One of the charges that was consistently leveled against Paul was that his preaching of grace would lead to unrestrained conduct. The argument went does that if we are only made right by God’s grace, and God is so free with his grace, then there is no reason for a person to choose the way of holiness and righteousness. And yet in these verses, we find the opposite is actually true.

God’s grace, so freely given, is also transformative. It is daily teaching us to walk in the way of godliness more and more.

We are saved by his grace, and we are being transformed into the image of Jesus by his grace.

There is, of course, much more to God’s grace, but at a minimum, these things are reason enough for praise. Let us renew our praise for God for His grace today, for it is by his grace we have been saved, are kept in right standing, and are being transformed.
