(Titus 2:11-12 ERV) That is the way we should live, because God’s grace has come. That grace can save everyone. (12)It teaches us not to live against God and not to do the bad things the world wants to do. It teaches us to live on earth now in a wise and right way—a way that shows true devotion to God.
1. Keep Walking! Change Is Coming!
(Luke 17:12-19 ERV) He came into a small town, and ten men met him there. They did not come close to him, because they all had leprosy. (13)But the men shouted, “Jesus! Master! Please help us!” (14)When Jesus saw the men, he said, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” While the ten men were going to the priests, they were healed. (15)When one of them saw that he was healed, he went back to Jesus. He praised God loudly.”
2. How Does It Happen? I Don’t Know, But Jesus Will Make It Happen!
(Ecclesiastes 11:5 ERV)You don’t know where the wind blows. And you don’t know how a baby grows in its mother’s womb. In the same way, you don’t know what God will do—and he makes everything happen.
(Romans 8:14-16 ERV) The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them. The Spirit that we received is not a spirit that makes us slaves again and causes us to fear. The Spirit that we have makes us God’s chosen children. And with that Spirit we cry out, “ Abba, Father.” And the Spirit himself speaks to our spirits and makes us sure that we are God’s children.
