Wesley's Notes for Titus 2:13


2:13 Looking - With eager desire. For that glorious appearing - Which we hope for. Of the great God, even our Saviour Jesus Christ - So that, if there be (according to the Arian scheme) a great God and a little God, Christ is not the little God, but the great one.

    Joan: good question! The answer is easy and heartbreaking. Most churches today are in a sea of darkness, they're dead. They're nothing more than a social club. The unsaved don't know they're on a path to hell. These churches look and sound good. The Lord said these things will be in the end times! Read Matthew7:13, John6:44, ll Corinthians5:17

    Joan, you asked"are we missing the mark" One cannot deny ungodliness (verse 12) if one does not know what godliness is. One cannot deny worldly lusts, (verse 12) if one does not live in the Truth, Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life. All of Titus 2 is speaking to God's elect. "The mark is missed," when one is following the flesh and not living by faith.
  • Joan
    If we are truly living for God,why are so many people not following the admonition in Titus2:12?we are missing the mark
