Allowing the grace of God to have power in your life means saying “no” to ungodliness. What does this mean? What does the Bible tell us about grace?
Titus 2:11 says, “For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.” It is for everyone.
So often we misunderstand and misapply grace to our lives. First, we must recognize what it is NOT. It is not the same the same as forgiveness. It is not a net to catch you when you fall or a license to do whatever you want without asking for forgiveness. Nor is it a get-out-of-jail free card.
Grace is unearned favor, prosperity, hope, joy, strength, etc. All we have to do is stay in the circle of God’s Kingdom.
It teaches us to say “no” to ungodliness and worldly passions (Titus 2:12). It is the power of God working and moving in your life. Revival is living self-controlled, upright, and Godly lives.
“Start saying ‘no’ to the things that rob you of your greatness and start saying ‘yes’ to the power of God.“
Titus 2:11-14 (NIV)
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
