_2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,  2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;  2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;  2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works._

 *#The Teaching of Grace*

The grace that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  Salvation comes through the grace of God. It is not something, that we merit or deserved. The wages of our sins is death. (Rom. 6:23). But, God in His mercy and graciousness, decided to present the gift of eternal life to everyone that believe in the sacrifice of his only begotten son, Jesus Christ.

It is the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, that made this grace available to all men. What you freely enjoyed, was at the expense of the life of someone, who loves you. Grace came with a price, which someone has paid. Do not take it for granted.

This grace appeared with a teaching and a sound doctrine. It doesn't gives room for us to continue in sin and ungodliness.

 _"Romans  6:1  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?"_

It teaches us 'to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts.' Though, we have once walked in that path but the moment grace appeared, he teaches us to know such acts no more. Our response to the temptations when it comes is to deny them access into our lives. Grace tells me that I'm a new creature, old things are passed away, behold all things are become new. (2Cor. 5:17)

Grace teaches me to live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world. This world is not my home, I'm just passing through. Grace is the one helping me through, so that I will not be wounded. Grace is pointing my eyes to behold the heavenly things, which are eternal. 'Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ', who offered himself as a living sacrifice to ransom us from the power of sin and death. He purify unto himself a peculiar people,  zealous of good works. We now live to abound in every good works. Hallelujah!

#God bless you

I'm deeply grateful, dear Lord Jesus Christ. I'm speechless of your so marvelous grace towards us, who believes in you. Help me to abide in the teaching of Grace, throughout my life time, in Jesus name. Amen!
