People's Bible Notes for Titus 2:14


Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us. The Lord who will appear gave the greatest of all things, himself, for us. That he might redeem us. To deliver us from sin, not only from its power, but its penalty. A peculiar people. "A people for his own possession" (Revised Version). Separate, chosen, holy in life. The Jews were, under the old covenant, a peculiar people; now, Christians, are God's Israel.

  • Irene123
    V. 11 - the grace of bringeth - salvation (Acts 2:38. THEN with grace, we are able to continue on in obeying His commandments, Jn.14:15. These commandments are in the Epistles (letters) following the Book of Acts. The epistles are to ALREADY established churches; they are instructions in righteous living for God. They are God's (Jesus) words given to the apostles, not mans words.
  • Steve morrow
    continued---titus 2:11 for the grace of GOD that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men 12 ---teaching us---that denying ungodliness and worldy lusts we should live soberly righteously and godly in this present world ---ACTS 20:32 AND NOW BRETHREN I COMMEND YOU TO GOD AND TO THE WORD OF HIS GRACE WHICH IS ABLE TO BUILD YOU UP AND TO GIVE YOU AN INHERITANCE AMONG ALL THEM THAT ARE SANCTIED

    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
